Description

Tor Launcher shows up the "missing PT" error box but when I click on OK everything starts up and works [tested using snowflake PT, so I'm on Linux]


Maybe same race condition that was previously mentioned?

What Tor Browser version are you using? (I am asking because the new 8.0a9 "should" have a Firefox icon instead of the Tor Browser icon in the upper left)

8.0a9. I'm using LXDE so that may be the reason (with XFCE I get the Firefox icon).

Edit: Forgot to precise: Bug only started to happen after 8.0a8 -> 8.0a9 update.

In fact it shows up as a Firefox icon in the task bar even in LXDE.

Yeah it happens even with obfs4 :(

My intuition says that this is probably caused by (though not a bug in) SelfRando as I can't reproduce it on a ff60-esr Nightly before SelfRando came in. Can anyone corroborate this?

I tested with a clean, new 8.0a9 on a 64bit Linux system and could not reproduce the bug with either obfs4 or snowflake chosen during first start. I wonder whether an update from 8.0a8 is needed to reproduce it (maybe an 8.0a8 even with one of those PTs configured while doing the update?).

I don't think that's the case as I've been able to reproduce it with a clean new 8.0a9 on a 64bit Ubuntu.

Interesting bit as well: Deleting the tor state file is sufficient to get rid of it permanently (here's hopping it won't show up in the future).

Since I was getting this too I tried the tip above to delete the state file and it worked, but after some restarts it seems to have been present again. gk: Here's my state file, can you use it instead to reproduce this bug?

FWIW, I did not get any mail so far.

Okay I sent you one from @scryptmail.com this time since apparently guerrillamail throwaways are blocked to you, new link: https://privatebin.net/?3bd7a5433cd56abe#6Zt1lrg4tF3DeK5RO8+3e7AXxsPkwhmuWJKf4HjapjI=

Seems like the issue no longer happens after an update to 8.0a10 - so far.
