[tor-talk] [rt.torproject.org #38223] Firefox Web Shortcuts

Greetings Tor Talk,

I am a tor user with a question. I was encouraged by the Tor Project support team to send my question out to you all. 

> > 
> > I've come across a strange issue that the Firefox team has been unable
> >    to solve thus far. I've already checked your FAQ and I didn't see
> >    the answer in there. I'd like to be able to save web links to my
> >    desktop as shortcuts. In Firefox, this ordinarily works by grabbing
> >    the icon next to the URL and dragging it to the desktop. However,
> >    I've discovered that the TorButton (and it alone) extension, when
> >    enabled, will not allow shortcuts. Every time I drag the URL icon
> >    from the awesome bar, nothing happens, and a little "can't do it"
> >    symbol appears on the mouse icon.
> > 
> > Can you tell me why Tor Button prevents saving shortcuts, and what the
> >    work-around is for this feature? If it's just a design feature, I'd
> >    recommend removing it on the next update, as I don't see the
> >    security risks, and it'd be nice to be able to save weblinks as
> >    desktop shortcuts. Thanks for your feedback!

> > Sincerely,
> > Michael
