 Replying to [comment:26 sysrqb]:
 > Great, thanks! I added a commit that synchronizes a few get..Pref()
 calls default values. I don't think we need all of them in sync, but it
 seems safer if retrieving a pref during initialization uses the same
 default value as defined in prefs.js.

 Thanks for doing that. The patch looks good except for three things:

 A. In `src/chrome/content/network-settings.js`, you do not want to add a
 second parameter to this line:
  `let prefBranch =
 but rather to this one:
  `let bridgeType = TorLauncherUtil.getCharPref(kPrefBridgeDBType);`

 B. In `src/components/tl-protocol.js`, I do not think we should change the
 code that retrieves `network.proxy.socks_port`. It was written to treat
 Firefox's default value of 0 as 9150.

 C. In `src/modules/tl-logger.jsm`, Kathy thinks we should leave the
 default default for `extensions.torlauncher.loglevel` as 0 so that if
 `defaults/preferences/prefs.js` cannot be read the user will get all
 logging (which may help with debugging whatever is wrong in their

 Hmmm. On macOS at least, I see the comma with 8.0a7 as well:
 5/16/18, 14:49:14.500 [NOTICE] Bootstrapped 100%: Done

 Maybe things were different on other platforms though. Anyway, I think we
 are close enough now to the old format that we won't get many complaints
 (famous last words!)
