#9285: Tor Taskbar button invokes non-Tor browser
 Reporter:  cypherpunks           |          Owner:     
     Type:  defect                |         Status:  new
 Priority:  normal                |      Milestone:     
Component:  - Select a component  |        Version:     
 Keywords:                        |         Parent:     
   Points:                        |   Actualpoints:     
 OS:  Windows 7.
 Steps to reproduce:
 - Start your regular, non-secure browser.  (In my case, this is Firefox.)
 - Start Tor and wait for Vidalia and the TorBrowser window to open.
 - Right-click the TorBrowser tile in the taskbar; this should pop up a
 menu with "TorBrowser", "Pin this program to taskbar", and "Close window"
 as choices.
 - Select "TorBrowser" from this menu.
 Expected result:
 Either a new TorBrowser window should open, or the existing TorBrowser
 window should be brought to the foreground, probably with a new tab having
 been opened within it.
 Actual result:
 My (non-secure) Firefox window gets focus, and opens a new tab.
