Tor Browser without Tor

In the past it was possible to remove Tor Launcher from TB and use TB for direct connection (no proxy). Now (5.5) Torbutton asks to be disabled to allow that.

Moreover, with Torbutton disabled, TB with the no proxy setting is "unable to find the proxy server" when opening a website, though it does work with an HTTP proxy.

What is the use case here?

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by cypherpunks

Using TB as a security and privacy-enhanced Firefox, in many situations where going through a Tor exit is not a good idea, with or without HTTPS.

That's not something we support actually. So, we won't work on it. Not sure whether we even would merge a patch supporting this usecase.
