Is it possible to have Torbutton activate Tor only on specified tabs and not others? It would make Tor much more useful.

So far this is not possible, no. There is an ugly, but workable, solution in using Firefox's profile manager. By creating two separate profiles in the profile manager (by running Firefox with the -profilemanager switch) and creating two shortcuts/links with respective -P "yourprofilename" switches, it is possible to run two separate instances of Firefox, one of which is free to use Torbutton while the other does not.

Until Firefox provides a way to isolate tabs as individual processes, I don't see such a feature being implemented.
