"Tor over Tor" When Using Anonsurf + Tor Browser?

Hi, apologies if this isn’t the right area for this question.

Here’s my question:

If one starts Anonsurf and then the Tor Browser, is it correct that this will create a “tor over tor” scenario when using the TBB?

Some links explaining why tor over tor is generally not a good idea:

Any thoughts/info appreciated!

There will be a fix soon.
In the meantime you can do the following:

  • disable TOR Launcher
    click about:addons in the address bar and press enter
    find Tor Launcher and disable it

  • disable socks network DNS
    type about:config in the address bar …
    When the windows opens type network.proxy.socks_remote_dns … Right click on true and toggle to false.

  • last step-- Now we must disable Tor Browser’s proxy settings
    Again on address bar or through settings we must go to Network settings.
    With address bar type about:preferences#general and press Enter. Scroll down to Network Proxy section and click settings. Change the proxy settings by choosing No Proxy.

Then restart TBB and it should be fine
