Tor works at first sight normally,but is it really secure?
If you use Torbutton w/ regular Firefox, Torbutton has a setting which state it will start in - disabled or enabled. You can change / save the preference. I haven't used the latest stand alone Tor / Vidalia bundle w/ Firefox, so don't know what the default setting for Torbutton is. It used to be set = disabled by default.

If you use TBB, Tor is automatically enabled when the Browser (Aurora (Firefox) ) is launched.
