Browser Toolboxfails to open when tor-launcher is present

Description

In latest dev branch origin/tor-browser-60.8.0esr-9.0-1 the Firefox chrome debugger ( enabled in about:debugging -> Enable add-on debugging ) does not launch. When you attempt to launch it ( via Menu -> Web Developer -> Browser Toolbox OR via Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I key combo ) the tor-launcher dialog pops up claims that it cannot connect to Tor, and the permission dialog asking whether you want to allow the local debugger to connect never appears.

Building firefox with --disable-tor-launcher in your .mozconfig does allow the debugger to work.

Should this be tbb-9.0-must-alpha? Without this inspecting the background requests and debugging is a bit more difficult...

If that is slowing down fixing the "real" esr68 issues, sure let's fix this quickly.

I thought this was going to be a blocker for me in doing #31286, but I discovered that since (most of) the code I'm dealing with is in about:preferences so the regular in-page debugging tools work fine so I'm not actively working on this.
