Tor Browser exiting on startup

When reporting a bug, please include as many of these as possible:

Mac M2 Ventura 13.4
12.5.6 (I don’t fully know, I can’t go to any page on Tor)
Open Tor and I get this message:
Tor exited during startup. This might be due to an error in your torrc file, a bug in Tor or another program on your system, or faulty hardware. Until you fix the underlying problem and restart Tor, Tor Browser will not start.
I have tried fully uninstalling, installing older updates, nothing works.
Tor log is blank as I can’t connect.

It was working fine, randomly last week this started. I am never able to get in.

Hi, could you follow the steps to uninstall Tor Browser in macOS and install it again?

Tried that again just now, I did that 3 times before, still getting the same error.

Can you restart your laptop and try again? Just in case.
