Don't know about Tor Fox's style of usage but one of my setups is a 
firefox without plugins with javascript turned off going through tor 
via privoxy. Is torbutton really needed in such a setup? The only 
problem I can immediately see is css-only history stealing.

P.S. Probably of interest to tor community:
New paper by Amit Klein (Trusteer) - "Temporary user tracking in major 
browsers and Cross-domain information leakage and attacks". The
paper is available to download from the following page:

User tracking across domains, processes (in some cases) and windows/tabs is
demonstrated by exploiting several vulnerabilities in major browsers
(Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and to a
limited extent Google Chrome). Additionally, new cross-domain
information leakage, and cross domain attacks are described, which
provide a foundation for attacks such as "in session phishing".
