I run Tor, Privoxy, and Firefox on DragonFly. I also run Konqueror on both 
DragonFly (KDE 4) and Ubuntu (KDE 3; I haven't updated it in too long). I 
leave Tor enabled in Firefox all the time, and the sites I need to bypass Tor 
for (Wiktionary, since I'm a Wiktionarian, localhost, and a few others) are 
listed in the Privoxy conf. Also localhost is exempt from Ubuntu's Konqueror, 
since if I ran it through Privoxy it would look at the DragonFly box, not the 
Ubuntu box. I've been annoyed several times by Tor coming up disabled and by 
tabs which I opened in Tor mode not coming up, when I thought I told it to 
bring them up.
