Description

I have some suggestions for Tor Browser Interface.

The configuration option which configures what ports tor browser connects through has been moved to a place where it does not appear when the configure button is clicked, and it only accessible after a successful connection. This could make it very difficult for people who are connecting through a firewall that only allows certain ports to configure this option, and I would suggest it is moved back.

The option to configure tor browser to use bridge relays has been renamed to "Tor is censored in my country". Even if in America, it could be a company, school, college, etc. firewall that is blocking the tor network (thus bridges would be useful). I would suggest ISP, firewall, etc, after the word Country.
