Feedback from testing the English OS X version:

When I click on the menu on the right, I have the proeminent choice
between “New Window” and “New Private Window”. That's confusing in the
Tor Browser setting.

Right there, there's also a “Fullscreen” entry. Given the
fingerprinting issue, this should also not be encouraged like that!

Same menu, there's “Sign in to Sync”. Do we want that?

Icons can be moved through the “Customize” entry at the bottom, so
I hope this is doable without crazy tweaks.

I still can't do NTLM authentication, despite
`network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1-https` being set to
`true`. That's a bit annoying.

The version string still says “Firefox/24.0”.
