Do not close this issue before reading.

I'm using Tor Browser without Tor[1] on my computer, and Firefox with Orbot on Android.

I've tried your "Tor Browser Android" but I failed to disable bundled Tor because it forcefully ask me to connect to Tor before editing configuration(can't access about:config).

I want you to add an option to disable bundled Tor from TBA before connecting. I want to use TBA without Tor so I can use it as a secure browser with Tor server on my Wifi network, Orbot, or other socks proxy.

TLDR: Allow expert user to disable bundled Tor, just like current Tor Browser(PC) offer.

Until you support this, I _have to_ use 'Mozilla Firefox Spyware version' with Orbot.

I _need to_ use Orbot so I can manually add custom made torrc to filter unnecessary connection(e.g. 'MapAddress')
