Currently I use Tor Browser old version (2.3.25) I'm using at the same time (5 pieces).I use a different port 9051,9052,9053 etc and it's working.

But now I download the fresh version (3.6.1) and I can't run more than 1

at the same time. Why? How can I fix it?

Guessing this is about settings in the bundles; assigning to the right component.

It sounds like the user knows about the socks port but not the control port, so it's using the same control port for each run and that's the conflict.

That said, this ticket is way old.

The better way to do it nowadays is to run one Tor Browser and set multiple SocksPorts in the torrc file. I'm going to close this ticket as no longer applying to the current Tor Browser.
