Another option would be to find how to dual boot between two GNU/Linux
distributions (like Guix and Trisquel) and use the (Trisquel) graphical
installer to do the installation. The issue here is to make sure not to
erase your existing distribution (Guix) during the installation as it
is easy enough to make the mistake.

Yet another way would be to use a virtual machine software like
gnome-boxes or virt-manager to install another GNU/Linux distribution
inside and use the tor-browser in that.

To make virt-manager (and probably gnome-boxes) work you also need to
add something like this in your service list in the system.scm:

There is a big quantity of options, so try to pick the one that looks
easier for you.
