Well, that's the odd thing. I start with torbutton disabled (red message on
the Firefox status bar). I then go to Firefox > Edit > Preferences > Network >
Settings and select Manual Proxy Configuration. (I notice that it tells me to
Disable Torbutton to change these settings, but it's already disabled). I
select 127.0.0.1 port 8118 for http and ssl, and port 9050 for socks. When I
click OK, Torbutton becomes enabled :(
At this point, http://config.privoxy.org/ shows me I'm that privoxy is
enabled, but if I then disable torbutton, I also lose my privoxy settings, and
it reverts to 'No proxy.'
