It works more like Freecap but I've added the code directly to the Firefox
socket code.

No, only the socks port 9060 (non-default) is open.

That's right.

After you replace the files you can build Firefox normally. Other than those
3 source code files in the SVN I've only changed the branding stuff and
startup options. I just search and replace the string "firefox" with
"torfox" and I have some icons and graphics I've made. I have some parts I
need to automate but I will definitely add a build section and the branding
stuff for building from source.

non-Torbutton protection and usability improvements that we have added?

I think it just appeals to a different style of usage. That's the reason I
wanted to make it anyways. I've disabled Java, set it to auto delete private
data on shutdown, etc. I'm looking for input as far as what kinds of
protection needs to be added.
