The problem is that there might be a situation in which you are using
tor network without knowing. It's ok for the plugin to modify settings
as long as the plugin is enabled. If we went back to FF3 just to use
torbutton, when we go back to FF4 proxy settings are still set to use
port 9050 and plugin is disabled. Once you realize it there is no
danger, but if you don't know, you could be sending private data
through tor using http. I don't know if I'm being clear.
