Sounds good. Please also add environment variables to express.

  • "I already have Tor running."
  • "Tor IP ="
  • "Tor port ="

Replying to proper:

  • "I already have Tor running."
  • "Tor IP ="
  • "Tor port ="

I think this ticket is about having a GUI interface to express "I already have Tor running", but there are these env variables:

TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1
TOR_SOCKS_HOST="host/IP"
TOR_SOCKS_PORT="port#"

(but note #8336).

Some of the other env variables that may be used are documented in #13005's comments.

Reduced prioriy to "Low" because there is a workaround.
