I am using Tor Browser version 5.0.2 (based on Mozilla Firefox 38.2.1)
It is on Windows 8.1 Professional Version 6.3.9600 (Surface)

When I install Tor browser the first time every thing works fine. When I close out of the Tor browser and restart it, it errors every time with the3 following error.

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity
Location: chrome://browser/content/browser.xul
Line Number 1401, Column 11: <toolbarbutton id="PanelUI-quit"

The work around is to reinstall Tor and then it works fine the first time. This happens on version 5.0.3.

I am a bit confused by your bug description. Are you saying Tor Browser 5.0.3 solves the problem for you? If not, what are the exact steps to reproduce it?

5.0.3 does not resolve it. I am unsure on how you can repeat it. For me the steps are:

  1. Download and install TBB 5.0.2
  2. Start the browser. Browse internet.
  3. Shutdown TBB.
  4. Restart TBB, this error appears.

My way around this is to repeat step 1. I.e. reinstall TBB and then it works fine. I have searched my hard drive for the file browser.xul I cannot find it. I do not understand what Chorme has to do with TBB. I have Chrome installed, but I normally do not open it.

Severity: Normal

A similar error was reported at Tor.StackExchange:
In this case the error message appeared when the user tries to update TBB.
