Description

Could you add an option to disable automatic startup of built-in Orbot in Tor Browser for Android?

I prefer do not use Orbot and use Termux's tor package instead.

Do you have a link to that package?

This is similar, but not exactly a duplicate of #29031. We'll need to think about the UI/UX for this, and how we can integrate it into the new configuration screens.

That works on desktop, so setting tbb-parity.

Let's call it "Tor" in the ticket's description, even if people are calling it "Orbot" (I'll leave the original summary).

Orbot is an independent app the Guardian Project created. We copied and integrating that app into Tor Browser on Android during the initial development process, but we don't include "Orbot" anymore.

We can add an option for power users for using another tor instance (and not launching our own).
