Please let us know when you have your fixes in place.  I for one would like
to have a look at it again.

I'm not saying having a Tor Fox's landing page back-ending into google is
bad, I was implying that *IF* you're trying to get revenue from Google
Ad-sense with Tor clients, it wouldn't work well...if at all.  Google is
pretty picky about Ad-sense, and if you start to get too many clicks from
the same IP (ie, a Tor router), then they'll mark your hits as false, refuse
to payout, and possibly terminate your account.  You could do users a favor
and just remove the ads.  :-)
Do you have any build instructions to go with this?
I looked at the SVN, and didn't see "glue" code that would bring this (FF,
Tor, MSI creation, etc..) all together.
I would like to be able to build this myself, from source.
