Detect captive portals
This is an outcome of the 1st Tails usability testing session.
it would be nice to have a little message saying “it might be that you’re on a captive portal network. you might want to open the unsafe browser to connect to it” if Tor fails to synchronize after some time.

We should consider detecting captive portals before Tor fails to connect. It’s a common feature on smartphones for example, so the network fingerprint of doing this proactively might be acceptable.

This will require some security analysis. I hope the conclusion matches this ideal one :)
