Description

Recently I downloaded TorBrowser-2.3.25-12-osx-i386-en-US.zip into my file://2.macbook.roman.czyborra.com/Applications/ imprisoned in a uname -a Darwin whitey.local 10.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.8.0: Tue Jun 7 16:33:36 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1504.15.3~1/RELEASE_I386 i386 and unpacked it there with open [ -a /System/Library/CoreServices/Archive?Utility.app ] and renamed it into the easier to memoize "TorBrowser.app" and deleted all the previous buggy versions and now I observe the following problems:

  1. All of my bookmarks were gone and I had to fear that I was being spoofed into a trapping onion URL because of unbeknown response behavior.
  1. Show all history also shows nothing as if I was not emancipated enough to decide for myself which history.log on unencrypted partitions I prefer to be redirected to file:/dev/null
  1. I received no warning which of my privately created data would be destroyed by TorBrowser if I did not manually back them up on paper punch tape notes.
  1. I simply attached the TorBrowser.app to the file:/System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/ and that seems to yield no way to recover data lost thru accidental [cmd]+[Q] or [cmd]+[W] while aiming for Emacs text editing with [ctrl]+[W] short of killing Vidalia to bring back a TorBrowser and starting everything anew.

User-unfriendliness not likely to grow our network either thinks me.

Which line on what wiki would I have alter to improve on this situation?
