     1This is a list of Seldomly Asked Questions pertaining to Tor Browser 3.x.
     2
     3=== How do I make Tor Browser 3.x use the tor that is already running on the system? ===
     4
     5Are you sure you want to do this?  The Tor Browser runs tor using different ports so it can co-exist happily with the tor process already running on your system.  Furthermore if you are running a relay, it may be better to run another tor instance for all of your personal Tor usage.

     12 1. Add the user you will be running Tor Browser as to the `debian-tor` group.

     14{{{
     15   export TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1
     16   export TOR_SOCKS_PORT=9050
     17   export TOR_CONTROL_PORT=9051
     18   export TOR_CONTROL_COOKIE_AUTH_FILE=/var/run/tor/control.authcookie
