There is no Tor over Tor in neither Non-Qubes-Whonix nor Qubes-Whonix. Tor Browser in Whonix-Workstation uses Tor running on Whonix-Gateway.
This is implemented through the package anon-ws-disable-stacked-tor.

From Whonix-Workstation you’ll never make a non-torified connection anyhow. You could use Tor’s
TransPort rather than Tor’s
SocksPort, but I don’t see the point.
Using Tor Browser from within Whonix-Workstation without any Tor access, using clearnet… Excuse me, why would that be useful? One could do that, but not without insecure modifications on Whonix-Gateway. Or one could use a Tor Browser without Tor from Whonix-Gateway, but what would that be useful for?
It might be interesting to document how to enable persistent storage of passwords and whatnot when using Tor Browser in Whonix. That would then fit here:
(However, then we should use wiki templates so we don’t have to duplicate the instructions. Minor thing. I can assist wtih this if you wish.)
Does this fully answer your question?
Sure. Would be useful, but rather low on my wishlist. (Higher priority on my wishlist is sandboxed Tor Browser, but it’s all up to you of course.)
A wiki page is a cool “first step”. Then some advanced users can benefit from it. We have a proof of concept and can demonstrate some interest. A super cool tool for us geeks.
As a “second step”… I however would also very much welcome if either The Tor Project would provide a
Tor Browser without Tor (which really needs a good name then)… Perhaps
SecureFox or so. (With the sandboxing available and preinstalled noscript and whatnot, it’s a focus on better security than Firefox and reduced tracking / better privacy. And/or a dedicated project with its own website, downloads, package repository and what not for SecureFox or HardFox or so.
I of course don’t expect you to do any of these steps. I appreciate however far you take it. And if you don’t do the second step, then that gets easier since a lot of the development work would be already done.
Would be cool if colors were somehow changed or so. I understand it’s a lot detail work and may not be simple.
