 > > 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.

 second parameter to this line:

 Ugh. Fixed.

 > 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.

 Ah, right. I reverted that and added a comment so hopefully someone else
 doesn't do the same thing.

 > 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

 Sounds good.

 we are close enough now to the old format that we won't get many
 complaints (famous last words!)

 I agree! Okay, I pushed a new branch. `bug25750_4`. Also, it seems like
 `meek-http-helper` needs updating because it imports
 `resource://gre/modules/devtools/Console.jsm` which is a shim for
 `resource://gre/modules/Console.jsm` in 52ESR, but the shim was deleted in
 Bug 1386535. I'll open another ticket for that.
