How to reproduce:

  • Download a file such as an image using Tor Browser.
  • Go to the Download tab of Tor Browser.
  • Try to open the file from Tor Browser by double clicking it inside Tor Browser download tab.

What’s happening?

#open-link-confirmation popup shows up. The buttons are functional but no text is displayed (so one has to guess which one is yes/no).

This is the relevant bash xtrace.

++ /usr/lib/msgcollector/generic_gui_message warning 'Confirm Open' '<p>The following <b>file</b> will be opened in <u>Tor Browser</u>.</p>
<p>Be careful if <u>Tor Browser</u> is already running as your activities might get linked.</p>
<p><code><blockquote>/home/user/.tb/tor-browser/Browser/Downloads/tor-on.png</blockquote></code></p>' 'Continue?' yesno
libGL error: unable to load driver:
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

(Saw this xtrace this by commenting in

set -x
exec 1>/tmp/torbrowser.log
exec 2>/tmp/torbrowser.log

at the top of /usr/bin/torbrowser)
