 As of Firefox 58, the browser implements a TLS handshake timeout with a
 default value of 30 seconds. Previously, the timeout was a lot longer
 (maybe the same as the system TCP connect timeout, which is typically on
 the order of 10 minutes). We should decide whether we need a longer
 timeout for Tor-based browsing, e.g., 2 or 3 minutes. See:
