TBB Alpha doesn't work with external/system Tor

TBB Alpha 6.5a4 unconditionally sets 'network.proxy.socks' to
'file://.../Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Tor/socks.socket' and 'network.proxy.socks_port' to 0 each time Tor Browser is started.

It doesn't matter if 'TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1' is set and it doesn't care about 'extensions.torbutton.use_nontor_proxy'.

Set TOR_SOCKS_PORT or TOR_SOCKS_IPC_PATH depending on what you want to use.

Setting TOR_SOCKS_IPC_PATH to the host running Tor and TOR_SOCKS_PORT to the proper port does set the proper proxy variables.

However, stream isolation doesn't work, no socks username / password is used.
