Tor Browser shutting down.


#1

I’m a complete noob when it comes to this subject.

For a couple times the Tor Browser has been shutting down and I get to see this error:

########################################################### ##
torbrowser script bug. ## No panic. Nothing is broken. Just some rare condition ## has been hit. Try again later. There is likely a ## solution for this problem. Please see the Whonix News, ## Whonix User Help Forum and Whonix Documentation. ## https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tor_Browser ## Please report this bug! ## ## BASH_COMMAND: “$tb_browser_folder/Browser/start-tor-browser” --allow-remote “$@” ## exit_code: 139 ## ## output: /usr/lib/msgcollector/msgcollector ## output_opts: --icon /usr/share/icons/anon-icon-pack/tbupdate.ico --parentpid 23373 --identifier torbrowser --parenttty none --whoami user ## progressbaridx: ## ## Experts only: ## bash -x torbrowser ###########################################################

The error message is non-ideal, will be improved in Whonix 14. It just
means Tor Browser exited with code 139. Very much likely not a
tb-starter bug.

Most likely the same would happen, if you started Tor Browser from the
command line. Please try that and see if there are more clues on why it
is crashing.
