#32728 new defect

On some Windows machines the browser window is white during start-up

I noticed that while testing bundles on my Windows system that after subsequent starts a confusing empty browser window is showing up during the Tor Launcher dialog being visible. That never happened before Tor Browser 9, though.

Today a confused user showed up on #tor reporting what I believe is actually this issue. Attached is a screenshot.

FWIW: From memory, I saw this on almost every non en-US pack (never on en-US). I set up a full suite of 9.07a (32 bundles at the time, non English) and they're still all sitting there for when I get around to updating them for more tests.

I just reproduced at will on the first random test - russian. Windows 7. Is there a command line I can run to debug and output anything for you.

My initial thought was this smells a bit like the sandboxing race condition bug fixed in #26381 (during testing it also showed a white content page) but it's not clear from the screenshot that this is the same symptom.
