I'm using Tor Browser on Linux from time to time, but I close the browser because it has high memory usage, and leave Vidala running in background to help the network and relay traffic.

The problem is, when I want to use Tor Browser again, I have to shut down Vidala and start it again. This takes time and has negative effect on the network.

When I execute ./App/Firefox/firefox-bin, the browser starts but says it's not connected via Tor network.

Any ideas how to start tor browser and make it connect to existing Vidala instance?
