    v17 v18  
    55Oddly, if I do a 'telnet localhost 9151' before (or after) the "Could not connect to Tor Control port." popup appears, I am able to successfully connect to the port (though I didn't try anything beyond connecting).  I tried using the extensions.torlauncher.prompt_at_startup preference and also the TOR_FORCE_NET_CONFIG=1 environment variable to get it to start with the Tor Network Settings dialog after the first run, in the hopes that the explicit wait for Tor to start would work around the 30-second timeout, but strangely, in that situation, too, I just get a permanent "Waiting for Tor to start..." message.  I also tried reverting a few different preferences / state files to their pre-first-run versions, but none of the ones I tried helped.

    7 I have confirmed that tor.exe and firefox.exe are getting properly shut down between runs.  My system clock is also set accurately.  I have tried installing in multiple different (NTFS) locations, including the default of my Desktop, to rule out permissions issues.  As with the OP, when I start the Tor Browser firefox.exe (I also have the normal Firefox on this system, and it works fine) with -console -jsconsole, I get no console output (do I need to change some log level to be more verbose or something?).  There are a couple of add-ons I need to use with Tor Browser (they do not change my browser signature, and I believe their authors to be trustworthy), but since they require restarting to use, I can never use them, since I need to start with a fresh install every time.  Note that selecting those for installation is not what's causing this failure, though -- it fails on the second run and thereafter regardless of whether I install any add-ons on the first run (and regardless of whether I make any settings changes).  I have not attempted to run Tor Browser as an Administrator, but I can try that if it would help with debugging this.
