Frequently users contact the support desk for help configuring a proxy when they don't need to.
Some users think they can get even more security by setting a proxy with Tor, or they think that using a proxy with Tor can circumvent website bans, or they start using Tor when someone tells them they need to use a proxy, then when they see on Tor Browser's launch that they can set a proxy, they think that's what they should do.
Please use this ticket to discuss other ways tor-launcher is confusing for users.
