Description

On OSX, the Tor Browser profile is stored in the directory TorBrowser-Data next to the Tor Browser directory.

The Uninstalling page in the manual is mentioning the Tor Browser directory, however it does not mention the TorBrowser-Data directory that some users might want to remove too.

Good catch. We should also mention that if the Tor Browser application is in the Applications folder, the directory to remove is ~/Library/Application Support/TorBrowser-Data/

It seems that this is a duplicate of #22611 (sorry if that's not the case) which already has a patch up for review by pastly.

Oops, the ticket above is for Webpages/Website and not Community/Tor Browser Manual, really sorry for that!

There's no branch there except master.

Thanks! I used git push --set-upstream origin master and thought it would push my branch to master. Now it's in https://github.com/traumschule/tor-tb-manual/tree/uninstall

https://tb-manual.torproject.org/uninstalling/ is the current version of the doc, with modifications.

boklm could you please review them, along with https://support.torproject.org/tbb/tbb-28/ ?

maybe we should replace one of the two with a link to the other document, to avoid duplicating content.
