"Live" Source Code Editing[edit]

Install Tor Browser as usual.

Make sure Tor Browser is closed.

Go into this folder:
/home/user/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.default/extensions/

There will be a named:
tor-launcher@torproject.org.xpi.

Extract it.

Right Click → Extract Archive Here, Autodetect Subfolder

Now delete:
/home/user/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.default/extensions/tor-launcher@torproject.org.xpi

Now you will have this folder:
/home/user/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.default/extensions/tor-launcher@torproject.org/

When you now start Tor Browser, that folder will be used. This means, if you make changes, those will be in effect next time you start Tor Browser.

Bonus. Use git to monitor it.

cd /home/user/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.default/extensions/tor-launcher@torproject.org/

Add to git etc.

git init
git add *
git commit -a -m .
