Description

From the 1.3.0-alpha ChangeLog:

  • new: tor:// and tors:// url support to auto-toggle into tor mode (patch from Kory Kirk)

Since 1.3.0-alpha I use tors:// for bookmarks, with 1.3.2-alpha they do not work any more. When using them firefox shows the default error message for unknown protocols:
"
Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (tors) isn't associated with any program.
"

Should tor:// and tors:// still work or was this feature dropped in v1.3.2-alpha?

thanks,
tagnaq

This feature was removed for security reasons. See #1999.
