    Run Tor Launcher in an unconfined Firefox. · 8adcfc21

    Running Tor Launcher with the same AppArmor profile as Tor Browser would force
    us to open that profile too broadly. E.g. it requires the ability to run
    dbus-daemon, to give an idea.
    
    Given:
    
     * Tor Launcher runs as a dedicated user
     * Tor Launcher runs very early, at a time when the user likely isn't doing
       anything sensitive to X keystrokes sniffing etc., and closes immediately
       after Tor is ready
     * Tor Launcher offers a very limited set of functionality
    
    => it seems safe enough to run it unconfined, at least for now.
