Hey Wim,

When talking about TBB the Tor Browser Bundle is meant. (Including vidalia and little-t-tor; You are calling it just Tor Browser but it's the same thing)

TBB is built using the Firefox Kernel with some additions/extensions and mostly just a secure/careful configuration. So if you are using TBB / the Tor Browser you are always using Firefox.

You can manually by following this guide on Option 2. Here you need to select the path to your firefox.exe (usually in the "Tor Browser" Folder) manually. 


Please let us know if this helped,
