Comment (by mcs):

 Replying to [comment:14 gk]:
 > Nice! Have you by chance tried testing the mechanism you are using for
 integrating Tor Launcher into the browser in, say, some recent-ish
 mozilla-central build? It might be worth it in order to figure out whether
 we could do more work already now in case there are unanticipated problems
 with our migration plan for esr68.

 We did not try the build integration, but in early January we performed an
 experiment in which we manually embedded Tor Launcher inside a nightly
 build of Firefox 66 (that is, we hacked `browser/omni.ja`).  I do not
 remember everything about that experiment, but the general integration
 approach was successful (although #29197 needs to be fixed for Tor
 Launcher functionality to work fully in newer Firefox builds).

 Please let us know if you want Kathy and me to do a new, more thorough
