Tor Browser does not use port 9050 by default, and it configures the SOCKS port programatically not via the torrc file. The correct solution is to use about:config to append NoOnionTraffic to the extensions.torlauncher.socks_port_flags preference (make sure you restart Tor Browser after making that change).

Verified solution. Thanks.

Someone needs to update the on-line documentation:
