Tor browser - error on startup

Reported by: cypherpunks Owned by: tbb-team

Windows 7 x64 SP1 english with all windows updates
Tor browser 64bit 9.0.1 english
Sandboxie 64bit 5.31.6

When starting up Tor Browser, the following error appears:

firefox.exe - DLL Initialization Failed

Initialization of the dynamic link library C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\SbieDll.dll failed. The process is terminating abnormally.

The issue does not occur when launching the 32bit version of Tor Browser on the same machine.

The issue has occurred for many versions of Tor Browser now, and the workaround of using 32bit instead of 64bit Tor Browser always worked - but I would prefer to use the 64bit version.

Perhaps related, but much older issue

Furthermore, no antivirus software is installed.

Generic 64bit Firefox works just fine inside this Sandbox.

Also, Sandboxie is now a free product, which should make testing/replicating this issue easier
