There is a GitLab ticket open to track this error and a workaround:

While we’re waiting for someone to figure out why this is happening, you can get it working on Windows 10 by setting Tor’s firefox.exe to run in Windows 7 compatibility mode:

  • Right-clicking on Tor’s firefox.exe, and select properties
  • In the “Compatibility” tab, check the box that says “Run this program in compatibility mode for”, and set the dropdown box to Windows 7

Let us know if that works for you.


it didnt work in win 7 comp mode but i troubleshot it and went with the settings applied by the troubleshooting.
maybe someone else cane get help with this extremely annoying issue.
thanks again.
