Currently when installing Bisq for the first time and running it the software connects to the Tor network without letting the user configure it. Only after the initial connection is established the user is allowed to configure Tor.
This is poses a significant risk to some users' privacy, anonymity and security. In some countries with widespread censorship just connecting to the Tor network can cause negative consequences from the government and put the user in a very bad light forever. It is therefore very important to let the user configure the Tor connection before it's established so that they can take necessary countermeasures against detection.
Connecting to Tor before having the ability to configure it goes against Tor's philosophy. Tor Browser doesn't connect to Tor without letting the user configure the connection first. 
Please fix this and allow the user to configure Tor before connecting to it. Thank you.
