Nothing stops you pointing your browser at your own copy of Polipo[1]
and pointing that at Tor's SOCKS port. Or skipping Polipo (as it's no
longer a technical necessity) and pointing your browser directly at
Tor. Having said that, the Tor Browser *is* Mozilla, with a handful of
patches and a couple of preinstalled addons. If you're experienced
enough to understand the implications of not using the default setup,
then you're experienced enough to take what's in the bundle and
configure it some other way. And if you really can't spare the 35M that
the superfluous browser takes up, then delete it!
