Description (last modified by mikeperry)

It has been requested that Torbutton provide the ability to either turn tor on for urls with
a particular prefix (ie tor:// or tors://), or to add the ability to specify certain bookmarks
are Tor-only.

The latter feature seems much more interesting, but I'm not sure if the bookmarks engine allows
you to add on extra fields. Perhaps both features need to be implemented in tandem, so users
can then just bookmark tor:// urls.

The extension possibly should ask for confirmation also. Not sure I like the idea of tor state
sometimes magically toggling on just because a website had an img src="tor://" in there or something.

This is implemented in 'master' branch by koryk, but it needs additional testing and bugfixing. In particular, img tags and other browser content can cause the toggle to happen. We need some code to ensure that the toggle happens only if the toggle url is actually in the browser url bar, and it hasn't been a redirect or a refresh.

KoryK has test cases for this. He should be prodded into attaching them to this bug.
