Please don't recommend Tor Button!


recommending the Tor Button is a security/anonymity hazard. Clicking on
the Tor button will automatically remove the ftp and gopher proxy in
firefox for example. (Would the author of Tor button also set the other
protocols to use Tor if we asked him?) A better way is to create two
different OS users and leave the Tor user account with all browser proxy
settings permanently. This also solves the cookie problem as anonymous
and non-anonymous surfing isn't mixed.

Also please advise the user to make "www.whatismyip.com" as the homepage
of the browser in the Tor OS account. So he can see what is active
before he starts  surfing.
