Description (last modified by gk)

Whenever Torbutton is activated, the whole Firefox session is gripped under the tight reign of the Tor network. Some users may want use Tor on particular sites where their privacy is important, but continue browsing the other sites normally. Or simply because it is slower than normal connections, they might want to limit it to the particular sites or connections where anonymity is prioritized.

I propose an option which allows the user to activate Torbutton only in tabs or windows they want access using the Tor network. Simply by directing the connection of the Torbutton activated tabs to the Tor software, the user can enjoy normal connection beside it.

Is there anyway to modify it? I seem to have erred in a few places.

Turns out this is not possible to do securely with the provided firefox APIs. Firefox bug
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=436344 covers this.

For now, you need a second browser. You can start up a new firefox instance with:
firefox -P -no-remote

Version: 1.2.1Torbutton: 1.2.1

Updating the version from 1.2.1 to Torbutton: 1.2.1 so I can close #1743.
