Are you using torbrowser-launcher? We had some report on IRC that mentioned torbrowser-launcher's AppArmor blocking access to /dev/shm/org.mozilla.*.* is responsible for that.

I*ve got the same problem.
I'm using debian buster and torbrowser-launcher.
I can try to edit the appamor profiles, if you tell me how.

I'm running Tor Browser with Apparmor profiles in enforced mode (confirmed with aa-status) and have no problems whatsoever.

However my profiles are very slight modifications of the ones from torbrowser-lancher's devel branch. What I modify is only the paths because I don't use torbrowser-launcher and have the bundle in a different directory.

Maybe it has something to with that. Although if the paths were wrong then the profiles wouldn't even apply. Or maybe the devel branch on github has a different profile than what people have installed on their systems.

Seems to be a torbrowser-launcher bug actually.

I applied the two line from boklms posting to the Apparmore profile. Now everything works pretty fine.
Thank you!

comment:8 Changed 12 months ago by carlosnewmusic I have already reported it there, because even modifying those two lines still works out the same with both the current stable version and with the alpha
