Tor log should be accessible while Tor Browser is starting up

Sometimes users write to the Help Desk saying that their Tor Browsers do not manage to start. Since it does not start and stops in the initial loading "Tor Status" screen displaying "Connecting to the Tor Network", users are unable to grab a log to send to the Help Desk.

I agree that there should be a way to access the log from the progress dialog. It would be nice if #10059 was also fixed but this bug will focus on providing access.

Severity: Blocker

Just saw another instance of a user running into this issue on #tor. This can be an obstacle to providing good support. Also confirmed on Tor Browser 7.5a4 on Linux -- the button "clicks" (shows the I've-been-clicked feedback) but nothing gets copied unless I first hit "cancel" in the progress window.

Sorry, should have commented that I don't remember setting Severity to Blocker but I didn't know what it was before so I set it to Major instead.

This seems like a special case of #9516, or at least it is highly related.
