Windows, macOS and Linux get 13 vulnerability fixes and Android gets 1? Does this mean 12 of the vulnerabilities affecting Windows, macOS and Linux don’t affect Android or is Android affected but just no patch designed yet? Please let me know

As a sugestion, you guys could also inform that the Windows version of Tor for relay operators where made available in the same Distro as this Tor Browser version, because there’s no information about new releases for Windows relays as far as I could search for, neither on the main posts:

Tor browser “update” consistently “update fails” via Tor Browser (Windows 10 pro, connection via Bridge, with or without ProtonVPN)


Hi Guys,
just to let you know that the update to 11.5.8 fails on all my platforms (Windows 10, MacOS Big Sur and Ubuntu 20.0.4).

I downloaded the 11.5.8 MacOS dmg (x64 only) and discovered that the folder name has changed to ‘Tor Browser’ (from TorBrowser) and the installation date on all files is 1 Jan 2000…

I think I’ll wait for a fix.


Update on Linux fails and directs me to the full download of TB page.

I’ll wait for a fix as well. Thanks guys for chiming in!

Yay, the update on Linux works now, at least for me. How about everyone else and their respective platforms?
