Description

I am on Windows 7 x64, not running an anti-virus app, or the firewall --
just recently turned it off to see if Tor would connect without it --
and the funny thing is, it was working fine two weeks and a few days
ago, but this started after upgrading to 4.5 and haven't been able
to connect since. Tried downloading 4.5 again but running it from
another drive, and get the same error message.

I tried the following which could be found in another message, but it does
nothing at all:

  1. Start a Command Prompt (cmd.exe) and cd to Tor Browser\Browser (the folder that contains firefox.exe).
  2. At the command prompt, type: firefox -console -jsconsole

So what the heck is going on, because, like I said before, it was
working fine until after the update to 4.5!

I am sorry Tor Browser is not working for you. The error message "Could not connect to Tor control port." is displayed after Tor Launcher (part of Tor Browser) fails to connect to the Tor control port for 30 seconds. Please provide some more information to help track down the problem:

  • What version of Tor Browser was working for you before you upgraded to 4.5?
  • Did you try downloading a new copy of Tor Browser 4.5 and installing it into a new directory?
  • Do you see anything on your screen before the error message is displayed?
  • Do you see any firefox.exe or tor.exe processes in Task Manager?
