Running multiple instances of Tor Browser

Some of us are interested in running multiple Tor Browser instances at the same time; an answer on how to do that was posted here:

  1. Does the above method have any negative implications (security, anonymity, Tor network load, etc.)? Is there something missing or redundant in that method?
  1. Default value of extensions.torbutton.use_privoxy is true, yet even a standard Tor Browser instance sets it to false. Is the default value a leftover from older Tor Button versions?

A good place for the first question would be our tor-talk mailing list. I guess a lot of its subscribers could be interested in a discussion about it.

Regarding your second one: That is a relic of the old Torbutton days and is gone in the Torbutton that is shipped in out alphas and will be gone in the next stable as well.
