Description

I usually have my Torbirdy pointed to the ports used by my TBB and it is a bit annoying that I always need to adapt its settings manually after enabling the extension again.

I see what you mean. But the problem is that when we disable TorBirdy, we have to clear out everything, which means clearing all custom settings.

If what you are trying to do here is to disable TorBirdy temporarily to access some account that you don't to over Tor, have you looked at wiki:torbirdy/preferences#a-TransparentTorification option?

Why? AMO is not requiring that. If at all it is required when you remove the extension. And transparent torification might help only partially as I have the problem with other options as well.

Severity: Normal

I set No Proxy for 127.0.0.1 and it disappears after every restart of thunderbird.

I need this to access my email servers.

Putting aside the issue of allowing user settings to persist, this specific issue was fixed in b2f6a4 and will be a part of the next release.
