Two Icons on Mac Dock, app frozen

Hi. Running TorBrowser 5.5.3, OSX 10.11.3. I have TorBrowser on my dock. Sometimes, when I click on the icon, it loads normally. But every so often, a second icon appears at the right end of the dock. When that happens, the app freezes, and nothing will make the app quit, not Quit or Force Quit. Not killing launchserviced with Activity Monitor. It often will halt the "Restart..." process (and "Shut Down..."), so that I have to hold the power button down until the machine shuts off. I then do a Single User Startup, perform an "sbin/fsck -fy" (twice) and then "reboot" to restore control over the machine.

Any thoughts on what is happening and how to fix it?

Thank you!

I have not heard of this problem until now. I did not turn up anything that is exactly the same via a Google search, but this response has some suggestions for debugging what might be a similar hung process problem:
