To make a Tor Browser from Firefox ESR there are many settings should be changed for the about:config, so can I have a way to change these values in a shorter time or can I directly use Tor Browser in the TBB folder, so that what setting should I do?

  • I'm not sure how to understand your question? Do you want to use a plain firefox ESR and change settings? Why not use Tor Browser in the first place? – Jens Kubieziel Oct 14 '14 at 14:02

There are numerous patches applies to FireFox ESR to make Tor Browser, so you cannot make one just with configuration options and extensions.
