Back Button on Tor Browser Android Closes App When Log is Open

Description

This is a small UX quirk that can frustrate/confuse new users, especially those who are unfamiliar with Tor and are curious about the log. When you open the log in Tor Browser on Android it fills up the entire screen and if the user presses the back button on their device the app will close. Generally when a screen is filled on Android pressing back takes you to the previous screen. I think little things could instill distrust in newer users.

This issue used to exist in Orbot a few years ago https://github.com/guardianproject/orbot/pull/139
I apologize if this isn't the correct spot to report this. I'm new to trac, and am open to feedback if there's a better spot to file this :) Also, I've implemented a fix and I'm still figuring out where to push my code and put it up for review... <3
