Some users use the the "core" as a privacy-enhanced Firefox. I use the FF ESR Portable executable launcher to facilitate this.

Replying to cypherpunks:

I meant that core is the place where are located integrated addons, which you can't disable in, for example - pdf.js addon.
Allowing users to disable something which even has no description (e.g. TorLauncher) would allow them to completely turn off their privacy by browsing through Tor.

I think this must be fixed soon, it really makes a big risk to many less experienced users.

Severity: Normal

We can use the directories <app_dir>/browser/extensions or <app_dir>/browser/features to enforce the proper installation of the add-ons.

Fuck off. I use TB without Tor to get access to I2P. Sometimes I use TB with plugins disabled when I'm offline.
