Tor Browser

Is there any advantage to add a rule for the Tor Browser (which incorporates Tor into Mozilla Firefox)?
It generates its own anonymous ip which changes each time.
Tor Browser and standard Firefox have the same exe name just stored in different location & rules don't seem to be able to differentiate

Hi there

No, I wouldn't say there's an advantage to do this, Tor is already separating your identity and address.

That said I can't see there being any problem with it either, it's just another layer. As you mention, HideAway filters only by process name, so using the Tor Browser within Firefox means HideAway will treat it the same as regular Firefox.
