If you don't like the idea of allowing cookies globally (who does?),
you'll have to turn cookies on / off a lot, or use a cookie manager.

I have upgraded to latest Tor Browser Bundle version: 3.5.4 - Windows
My operating system is Windows 8.1 Pro Enterprise, 64 bit.
The odd things i have noticed (which didn't happen in previous
1. Some kind of cookie / session handling issue, i cannot login to
mail.aol.com , after entering credentials I get this error:
Uh-oh! Your sign-in got derailed. We’re on it—sorry for the delay.
Click here to try again.
If you use a bookmark to get to AOL Mail, update it to
Browser security settings sometimes disrupt sign-in. In Internet
Explorer, try selecting “Enable Protected Mode” in both the Internet
zone and Trusted sites zone . On Firefox, try using Safe Mode .
You also might try deleting your browser history. Find this in the
“Tools” menu — and make sure to clear (delete) cookies!
Then addons have potential risk of compromising anonymity.
2. Windows doesn't see the portable
firefox within the Tor Browser Bundle as a portable app
Not "Windows", but CCleaner? (but see below)
That's the way CCleaner has always acted for me w/ TorBrowser. It
shouldn't care if the open Fx is portable or installed, only that it
can't clean it properly as long as it's open.
, i close my regular firefox
but CCleaner when I run CLEAN states that firefox is opened and needs
to close in order for it to clean the cookies and cache stuff.
