I am not so sure what this post is; more of a venting / rhetorical statement than anything.
Per the thread title -
I realize this has been asked in some limited fashion in the past and from what I have read the reasoning is - it’s Tor’s fault. Tor v 10 in my non-Whonix VM has been a real hemorrhoid compared to v 9 just a variety of small issues, high cpu usage, I often lose the drop-down visibility of the relays in the URL bar for some reason requiring me to reinstall the browser, odd episodes where all of my extensions disappear in the extension screen (but still appear in the browser toolbar) requiring me to reinstall. And then there is Whonix. The browser routinely crashes giving me the -
ERROR: Tor Browser ended with non-zero (error) exit code!
this usually happens on startup / failure to start for others that have reported it. I have never experienced this on startup only when it crashes, and takes my open window history with it. For me this has never happened prior to v 10 and it has never happened outside of Whonix which is why I am mentioning it here. I use non-Whonix Tor as my daily driver browser far more than the Whonix machine and its never happened outside of Whonix.
Just thought I would bring to the attention that this is a crashing issue not s start-up issue which only happens inside of Whonix.
