Tor Messenger: OTR not working with macOS Sierra

It seems like Tor Messenger 0.2.0b2 doesn't support OTR with macOS Sierra 10.12.

I'm on k2r67kry5haud25b.onion on the default port specified by Tor Messenger (5299?). I've been online for about an hour now, so I don't think it should still be generating keys.

What's odd is that under "Tools" I don't see "OTR preferences."

I've checked the error console, but there are no errors relating to OTR.

It sounds like the ctypes-otr extension is failing to load. You'd need to scroll all the way to the top of the error console to see the errors related to loading the extension.

I'm wondering if this is related to,

I should note that I've successfully used that version of TM on Sierra, so this is likely something specific to your environment (or, mine).

Attached is the only error log we were able to find, which isn't very helpful.

Removing the application and profile, and starting from scratch worked as expected. lnl's account is all setup now, and we were able to establish an OTR session.

I'm not sure how things got so corrupted. Tools > Add-ons > Extensions didn't even show ctyptes-otr, only Tor Launcher.
