TBB update doesn't work with torbirdy

Description

After the new update which changed ports: "Set the Tor SOCKS+Control ports to 9150, 9151 respectively on all platforms
This fixes a SOCKS race condition with our SOCKS autoport configuration
and HTTPS-Everywhere's Tor test. Firefox 17 appears to cache proxy
settings per URL now, which resulted in a proxy error for
check.torproject.org if we lost the race."
https://blog.torproject.org/blog/new-tor-browser-bundles-firefox-1703esr

Torbirdy would no longer connect with tor and says "the proxy is refusing connections"

Once I changed the port of TBB to 9051 like the previous TBB had it at (which I downgraded to to get torbirdy to work again before), torbirdy would start connecting but it would break torbrowsers functionality and say "the proxy is refusing connections".
It doesn't work the other way around setting torbirdy's settings to custom proxy at 9150 or 9151 like TBB is.

Has anyone else been having this problem? I think torbirdy's port settings need to be changed as tor being at port 9150, 9151 by default?

I see a trouble shooting FAQ which says tor should be on port 9050 but in my experience it never was to begin iwth.
