Whenever I try to turn on Tor Button I get the following message.

Torbutton: Please file bug report! Error applying Tor settings: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED) [nsIFileOutputStream.init]" nsresult: "0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED)" location: "JS frame :: file:///C:/Users/[username removed]/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/5cchw7gg.default/extensions/%7Be0204bd5-9d31-402b-a99d-a6aa8ffebdca%7D/components/cookie-jar-selector.js :: anonymous :: line 159" data: no]

I don't know what it means outside of Tor Button doesn't work.

This error usually means that Torbutton does not have write access to the area it is installed. Perhaps a write-protected USB drive, or a directory owned by a different user.

The workaround is to tell Torbutton not to write cookies to disk under its Preferences->Security Settings->Cookies menu.
