 Unlike Firefox, Tor Browser defaults to `--no-remote`.  So for that to
 work you need to have started it with `--allow-remote`.

 I believe the reason for disabling this by default is making foot-shooting
 harder for users. So keep that in mind.

 (BTW, never try to run the firefox binary directly, unless you know well
 what you're doing.)
