Torbutton 1.1.8-alpha (Usability improvements)

This is the 1.1.8 alpha release of the Torbutton Firefox extension. It
features significant usability and compatibility enhancements. However,
it is still alpha software, so it may have some rough edges. If you
notice issues or have usability complaints, now is the time to speak up
while things are still easy to change. Please be specific. 

I have made a good effort to anticipate common usability complaints for
this release from the feedback I have so far received, but I am not
omniscient. Eventually, this Torbutton will be backported to the stable
Tor release, so if you do not speak up soon, you will be perpetually
suffering in silence and will be stuck uninstalling the extension every
time you upgrade Tor (and leaving yourself vulnerable to numerous
anonymity-compromising vulnerabilities in the process).

See http://torbutton.torproject.org/dev for more information.
