Replying to cypherpunks_backup:

Shell script fails to find ./firefox file for some reason

TOR_CONTROL_PASSWD=${TOR_CONTROL_PASSWD} ./firefox  --class "Tor Browser" \
    -profile TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.default "${@}"

We had a user on irc recently who had a problem with this line, and it turned out his firefox didn't have the +x bit set. He had unpacked Tor Browser to a dos filesystem, and then copied the unpacked directory over to his linux filesystem, but unpacking to the dos filesystem had clobbered all the execute bits.

I had a similar problem: check the script start-tor-browser in the top folder (tor-browser_xx-XX), it should be a symlink to the real start script in Browser/start-tor-browser.

start-tor-browser -> Browser/start-tor-browser

In my case this was copied as a physical file and on launch it returns the error Exit Code: 127, since the expected path are not correctly resolved.

Yes me too. There is a bug in the path of start-tor-browser, the path lack of the prefix Browser or is missed the simlink to Browser/start-tor-browser. See bug:
