I'm pretty aware ;) On my other machines i tweaked firefox handishly
(essentially following the suggestions of bodhizazen). My best setup is,
as it appears to me also from testing with the specialized sites:

Squid3 -> Privoxy -> Tor (cash completely off in the browser). With
Noscript i'm having problems when it comes to view for example embedded
videos in websites of newspapers. So i do not use its working around
with Better Privacy, HTTPS-Everywhere and Request Policy (and lots of
tweakings in the ff preferences as well). Privoxy too, does a lot (it's
really a great tool).

It was mo out of curiousity - and since flash in FF ppc does not exist
anyway - i wanted to try out the tor bundle. I do not find frankly the
torbutton as a single package (and seems to me that on their site the
comuncate too the do not distribute it out of the bundle (?)
