Torbutton 1.3.1-alpha has been released at:

This release features a fix for the nasty pref dialog issue in 1.3.0
(bug #2011), as well as Firefox 4.0 support. Thanks to new APIs in
Firefox 3.5 and better privacy options in Firefox 4, Torbutton has now
been simplified as well. While we still provide a number of XPCOM
components, the number of native Firefox components we replace has
shrunk from 5 to just one.

However, the amount of changes involved in supporting Firefox 4 were
substantial, and it is likely that these changes as well as the
removal of old code has introduced new bugs. I've done my best to test
out operation on Firefox 3.6 and 4.0, but I have not tested Firefox
3.0, and I may have missed other issues as well. Please report any
issues you notice on our bugtracker:

Here is the complete changelog:
 * bugfix: bug 1894: Amnesia is now called TAILS (patch from intrigeri)
 * bugfix: bug 2315: Remove reference to TorVM (patch from intrigeri)
 * bugfix: bug 2011: Fix preference dialog issues (patch from chrisdoble)
 * bugfix: Fix some incorrect log lines in RefSpoofer
 * new: Support Firefox 4.0 (many changes)
 * new: Place button in the nav-bar (FF4 killed the status-bar)
 * misc: No longer reimplement the session store, use new APIs instead
 * misc: Simplify crash detection and startup mode settings
