My Tor browser bundle has recently stopped loading. When running the launcher, the "Connect to Tor" window opens but never completely loads, and I only see a blank screen (screenshot attached). There are many AppArmor "DENIED" messages in /var/log/syslog, here's a snippet:

Launching Tor Browser.

Running /home/<user>/.local/share/torbrowser/tbb/x86_64/tor-browser_en-US/start-tor-browser.desktop

I'm running Debian 10:

# cat /etc/os-release

VERSION="10 (buster)"

# uname -r

Also using torbrowser-launcher version 0.3.2. Please let me know if you need any further info.

Yep, this is a bug in the torbrowser-launcher program:

Your options are to (a) download actual tor browser from the actual tor website, (b) look at the pull request and patch the two apparmor lines yourself, or (c) wait for torbrowser-launcher to put out a new version.
