 > The code looks okay but Kathy and I have a couple of questions:
 > * Why is the delay before showing the prompt only imposed for about:tor?
 > * The old code only showed the prompt when the user accessed an HTTP
 page. The new code will show it at startup on about:tor, which seems like
 a less friendly "first run" experience (mostly because the prompt will
 cover up a lot of the about:tor content). Are we okay with this change in

 No. I think we should try to get it going the way it was implemented in
 #18019. Or at least the patch should give a similar experience.
