It is really weird, that Vidalia closes by default, when you close Firefox. There is no option to change that. It does not make sense, if people are expected, to enable contributing to the Tor network using Vidalia. No one can be expected to leave Firefox running 24/7. Do we have a ticket about this issue?

In meanwhile I did setup a workaround for your issue. Please test and leave feedback.

Wait if better answers come. (Perhaps I have overseen the option.)
