Summary: HELP! My browser wont start"General SOCKS server failure" prevents TBB launch

I am also experiencing the "general socks server failure", but it only seems to occur for a specific bridge. No other diagnostic information is given. Oddly, the system's Tor installation can use the bridge just fine, yet the error occurs in a fresh instance of Tor Browser 5.0.7 Stable. I have copy/pasted the bridge line from /etc/tor/torrc into the browser's torrc file, so it's not a typo. I have added the bridge both using the Tor Launcher and manually by editing the torrc file, but the error persists.

Does the problem occur when the torrc from Tor Browser is used with your system tor?
What version are you using for the system tor?

nickm -- can you look at the debug log from comment:1 to see if you have any insight?

It's not a core tor issue. The pluggable transport is failing to reach the Bridge, and the error is not one of EADDRNOTAVAIL, ETIMEDOUT, ENETUNREACH, EHOSTUNREACH, ECONNREFUSED or ECONNRESET. obfs4proxy has the -enableLogging and -logLevel` flags that do exactly what one would expect (see usage or the man page).

As far as the original submitter's log goes, looks like the bridges they're trying to use are all blocked. Not my circus, not my monkeys.

These Tor WARN: Proxy Client: unable to connect to %several_bridges%:%ports% ("general SOCKS server failure") every 5 mins are really boring. But there is nothing related in this ticket.

There has been no further information provided, and this looks like a problem that was related to the bridges which the user configured.
