 Torbutton commit 59445b7baed58e712bd38c02e6dc75882ff0c997 breaks things.
 More specifically:
   let proxy = originalProxy.QueryInterface(Ci.nsIProxyInfo);
 gives us the Privoxy settings and constructing out of it a SOCKS proxy is
 quite bold. :) I guess Privoxy does not like getting treated in this way
 and does not understand the browser. Not sure yet what a proper solution
 would be, though.
