 Replying to [comment:8 arma]:
 > Is it rude for Tor Browser to clobber my {{{~/tor-browser_en-
 US/Browser/.local/share/recently-used.xbel}}} file? Why?

 Oh that's right, Tor Browser's script overrides `HOME`.  I haven't messed
 with non-sandboxed Tor Browser in forever, mea culpa.

 Patch firefox to override the setting my commit messes with, right after
 the `gtk_init()` call then.  I assume users will cry if Tor Browser ships
 with it's own `.gtkrc-2.0` because they'll lose Gtk theming....
