 Okay comment:6:ticket:23127 mentioned that it is not possible to point Tor
 Browser to an own Tor instance. In particular
 Set a Tor proxy(in my case, my own tor hosted on network).
 did not work.

 Here is what I did on Linux (which is working fine)

 1) I took a clean, new Tor Browser
 2) After first start I made sure `extensions.torlauncher.start_tor` and
 `extensions.torlauncher.prompt_at_startup` are set to `false`
 3) Restarting Tor Browser gives me a complaining `about:tor` page
 4) I went to `about:preferences#advanced`, selected the Network tab and
 changed the SOCKS settings to match the ones of my system tor
 5) I started to browse using the system tor on my system.

 Are you saying this is not working for you?
