New Firefox 17 and Tor alpha bundles

We have some test Tor Browser Bundles available for testing! They contain Firefox 17.0.2esr which we're planning to switch to in February. Just as a reminder: these are alpha bundles. We're still testing them ourselves but we want to get them out for wider circulation so we can find out about any dealbreaker bugs before moving Firefox 17 into the stable bundles. For the more sophisticated users out there, we'd love it if you could run Wireshark with the bundles and let us know if you see anything untoward.
