    Firefox isn't a 'service', it's a single executable you use yourself, and is just 'software' rather than a constantly running at-boot service. Tor is a service so long as it isn't started up by Tor Browser and instead is run by the system. Firefox is not. If you are using Tor Browser, then Tor is not a service, it's launched from within the Tor Browser software. You can't control Firefox or Tor in these cases as 'services'. – Thomas Ward Sep 3 '18 at 15:42
