[liberationtech] Help test the new Tor Browser!

Looks great! Congratulations!

Minor things on OSX 10.7.5:

* Took considerably longer to connect to the Tor network using this browser bundle than my previously-installed TorBrowser-2.3.25-5-osx-x86_64-en-US. I'm on a slow network but 2.3.25 typically takes ~1 minute or less to establish a connection here, while the new build took 5+ minutes on first launch. (Much faster on 2nd launch, I guess the previously-collected directory information had been cached?)

* Small inconveniences:
     * when connecting, splash screen is set to always-on-top, which was a bit annoying when it was connecting for those 5+ minutes.
     * when using Mission Control feature on Mac, screen disappears and isn't collected with other app windows.

Installation went well, but double-clicking on "Start Tor Browser" icon doesn't start things off, nothing happens (seems trying something for a while, but crashes silently).  Is this known problem or am I the only one? I have two 64bit Win7 machines, and suffer from the same problem.  Things from the current  tor-browser-2.3.25-8_en-US.exe is working nicely for a long time, so I guess something wrong in the new Tor Browser Launcher...
