 Some of us are interested in running multiple Tor Browser instances at the
 same time; an answer on how to do that was posted here:

 1. Does the above method have any negative implications (security,
 anonymity, Tor network load, etc.)? Is there something missing or
 redundant in that method?

 2. Default value of `extensions.torbutton.use_privoxy` is `true`, yet even
 a standard Tor Browser instance sets it to `false`. Is the default value a
 leftover from older Tor Button versions?
