Android: Begin bootstrapping immediately after success

After Tor Browser successfully bootstraps once Tor-Launcher does not prompt the user to "connect" or "configure" the next time (or subsequent times, until there is a bootstrap failure). Android should provide a similar experience.

There is significantly more risk involved here, however, because (I assume) we are much more likely to "roam" onto a hostile network using a mobile device than when using a desktop or laptop.

Maybe we should make this opt-in as a config option in network settings?

I'm also a little worried about the conflict between safe-by-default and easy-to-use-by-default. Will a Firefox Focus user install Tor Browser and then configure it to automatically connect?
