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 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.'
