Torbutton alpha Preferences dialog OK button does nothing

In Torbutton 1.3.0-alpha on Firefox 3.6.10, the ‘Preferences’ dialog's ‘OK’ button does absolutely nothing when clicked. I see no way to change Torbutton's settings.

I see about:config now, but that's hardly user-friendly.

    Added smart ref spoofing

Jacob's transparent proxy support patches cause an exception when the ‘OK’ button is clicked, but they didn't introduce this ‘nothing happens’ bug.

Same apparently on OSX PPC FF2.
For instance, changing 'Do not write Non-Tor cookies to disk' has no effect if you close preferences and re-open - it reverts to the previous setting.

I've attached a patch that fixes this bug.

It was caused by lines 550-1 in preferences.js that attempted to get the "torbutton_CustomReferer" and "torbutton_CustomRef" elements (and associated preferences) that were removed in the smart ref spoofing commit. I also fixed the exception mentioned above.

Thanks for this patch! I will review it and get a release out ASAP (may be a little while. Am going to be MIA for 2-3 days).

I have applied this patch in master. I hope to have it out in 1.3.1, which should also support firefox 4.

The patch was included in Torbutton 1.3.1 and works.

Any plans to backport to Torbutton for Firefox 2, at least in the next stable?
