a solution to the non-working Tor button (i'm using FF4.0 beta, which does
not support it) is to have a proxy defined (i'm using polipo) defiend for
Tor and have a proxy switcher for easier switch (using proxy selector). you
define a proxy with localhost:8118, and switch to it, and Bob's your uncle.
go to https://check.torproject.org/ after to check if you are torified.
