 The fact that we set $HOME to the Tor Browser folder for most platforms
 may be confusing to users. The download and open dialogs default to weird
 locations for the user's Documents, Desktop, home, and Download folders. I
 wonder if we can fix this without letting Tor Browser otherwise leak
 outside its directory.
