 When I started a newly extracted TBB 2.2.30-2-alpha for Windows for the
 first time, I noticed a connection to `feeds.bbci.co.uk:80` in Vidalia's
 'Network Map' window -- Mozilla's 'Latest Headlines' Live Bookmark was
 present in the 'Bookmarks Toolbar' bookmark folder and working.  Firefox
 refreshed that RSS feed again the second time I started the TBB, and again
 when I clicked the 'Reload Live Bookmark' context menu item for that
 bookmark.  Torbutton/TorBrowserButton should completely prevent these

 (We may want to enable Live Bookmarks in a later TBB version, but we can't
 enable them safely until TBB ships Tor 0.2.3.x and TBB-Firefox has been
 patched to use the SOCKS authentication fields to isolate its streams.)
