Description

If "Transparent Torification" in Proxy Settings is enabled I'd expect do directly access the Internet without Tor (if no iptables rules redirect the traffic to a TransPort).

Steps to reproduce:

  1. open torbrowser
  2. click the onion
  3. select preferences
  4. select "Transparent Torification" (radio button)
  5. select "OK" (nothing happens - the windows does not close)
  1. close the window and torbrowser
  1. open torbrowser (the onion sign shows a big "X" in front of it)

one would expect that Tor is not enabled

  1. open a website to check your source IP (i.e. checkip.dyndns.org)

expected result: browser should show a non-Tor exit IP address.

actual result: browser shows a Tor exit IP address

(This test was not done at an internet connection that is also hosting an exit node)

Dup of #6566. If you want to test out that patch and verify it works for you, I'll go ahead and merge it.
