Ubuntu: tor browser not working



Question:

after upgrading ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10 my tor-browser stopped taking any input through keyboard. then i deleted tor-browser and when after reinstalling it frm terminal it is showing a message tht your firefox profile couldnot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible .


Solution:1

Ok, try this one:

Open tor-browser navigate to help > trobleshooting information and click on reset tor-browser and restart tor-browser

Alternatively, try to completely reinstall it:

sudo apt-get remove --purge tor-browser    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade    sudo apt-get autoremove    sudo apt-get install tor-browser  

Important

If you got a broken profile in your system, to do a complete removal run:

sudo rm /home/your_name/.tor-browser-en/INSTALL/Data/Browser/*  

or you can delete a whole thing like it never was on your system:

sudo rm /home/your_name/.tor-browser-en/  

For Mozilla Firefox:

sudo rm /home/your_name/.mozilla/firefox/*  

You can do this manually by going into your Home press Ctrl+H and search for the appropriate folders.


Solution:2

sounds like your TOR is in a hidden mode Go to your TOR Browser and right click on properties and click out of hidden click apply and close properties
