Excess TorMessenger folder

It is unclear why the folder ~/tor-messenger/Messenger/TorMessenger/Data/Tor exists.

torrc-defaults is read from
~/tor-messenger/Messenger/extensions/tor-launcher@…/TorBrowser/Data/Tor, isn't it?

In my ideal world, there would be no directories named "TorBrowser" or "Browser" and all of the data, profile, etc. would be located under Tor (if Tor Launcher needs changes to make this work, let me know).

This is now fixed with the updater patches. We have moved to the Tor Browser directory layout.
