#22528 new defect

Tor Browser 6.5.2 "Refresh Profile" has black window, copies profile to desktop

When I quit Tor Browser multiple times on start (trying to test #22503), it asked me if I wanted to "Refresh Tor Browser".

So I said yes, and the following happened:

  • It started and presented a black window for a few seconds titled "Refresh Tor Browser". This is ugly and confusing.
  • It copied my former profile to the desktop. This could potentially leak files or expose the fact someone was using Tor Browser. But it's minor.

Related to/basically a dup of #14118

Fixing this and other related issues correctly basically requires integrating all the extensions and prefs that are currently sitting in the profile the right way (#10760).
