Comment (by yawning):

 > Patch firefox to override the setting my commit messes with, right after
 the `gtk_init()` call then.

    /* Disable the .recently-used.xbel file. */
    gtk_settings_set_long_property(gtk_settings_get_default(), "gtk-recent-
 files-max-age", 0, "TorBrowser");

 In the right place should work.  Finding the right place is left as an
 exercise for the student.
