Description

If I click on a link and open it with TBA when TBA is closed like here -

It doesn't open in the custom tab and I get this -

But if I first open TBA and click Connect then go and click on the link then it opens up like it should.

This is an interesting problem. I wonder what we should do. I'm guessing we should (somehow) show the bootstrapping screen. At this point, we won't automatically connect to tor, so it seems like we need to give the person a button they can press that starts the process. I'll need to dig into the custom tabs code and see what we can do.
