This configuration causes Tor Browser to no longer use proxy settings. With no proxy, Tor Browser uses the (VM) system's default networking. This is identical to any other application inside the Whonix-Workstation that has not been explicitly configured to use Tor via socks proxy settings or a socksifier. This setting is also called transparent torification. 
Note: This action will break both the Stream Isolation for Tor Browser and Tor Browser's tab isolation by socks user name. This worsens the web fingerprint and causes the user to be pseudonymous, rather than anonymous. To mitigate these risks, consider using More than one Tor Browser in Whonix, or better yet, Multiple Whonix-Workstations.
If these settings are changed, expect Tor Button to show a red sign and state "Tor Disabled" if a mouse is hovered over it.
To enable transparent torification (no proxy setting), set the
TOR_TRANSPROXY=1 environment variable. There are several methods, but the #/etc/environment Method is the simplest one.

Command Line Method
Navigate to the Tor Browser folder.
Every time Tor Browser is started, run the following command to set the
TOR_TRANSPROXY=1 environment variable.
This only applies to a single instance of the Tor Browser folder that is configured. This method may not persist when Tor Browser is updated.
Find and open start-tor-browser in the Tor Browser folder in an editor.
This is most likely in ~/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/start-tor-browser below #!/usr/bin/env bash.
This will apply to the whole environment, including any possible custom locations of Tor Browser installation folders. 
Open /etc/environment in an editor with root rights.
If you are using a graphical Whonix or Qubes-Whonix, run.
kdesudo kwrite /etc/environment
If you are using a terminal-only Whonix, run.
sudo nano /etc/environment
Add the following line.
Save and reboot.
Reverting this change is undocumented. Simply unsetting that environment variable will not work due to Tor Browser limitations. The easiest way to undo this setting is to install a fresh instance of Tor Browser (please contribute to these instructions)!
Ignore Tor Button's Open Network Settings
Whonix has disabled the
Open Network Settings... menu option in Tor Button. Read the footnote for further information. 
This term was coined in context of a Tor Transparent Proxy. It acts as a simple gateway that routes all connections through Tor, but does not provide Stream Isolation.
- ↑ Unless this environment variable is manually unset before starting Tor Browser.
- ↑ The regular Tor Browser Bundle from The Tor Project (without Whonix) allows networking settings to changed inside Tor via the
Open Network Settings menu option. It has the same effect as editing Tor's config file torrc. In Whonix, the environment variable
export TOR_NO_DISPLAY_NETWORK_SETTINGS=1 has been set to disable the
Open Network Settings... menu item. It is not useful and confusing to have in the Whonix-Workstation because:
- In Whonix, there is only limited access to Tor's control port (see Dev/CPFP for more information).
- For security reasons, Tor must be manually configured in /etc/tor/torrc on the Whonix-Gateway, and not from the Whonix-Workstation (see VPN/Tunnel support for more information).
