I am an irregular user of Tor but like to have it at hand and use it from time to time. Up until recently, I would update frequently and it all worked smoothly. However, today is the first time I try launching it after upgrading to macOS Sierra and I am bumping into an error for the first time.
Instead of connecting like it used to, the "Tor Status" window stays in place for a while and eventually delivers an error message saying "Tor Launcher. Could not connect to Tor control port".
I upgraded to the most recent version of Tor Browser (6.0.2), created an exception in my Firewall and even deactivated my firewall for a bit, but all to no avail. Is this something someone else has bumped into? All the messages I found seemed linked to other parameters that do not apply to me. Could it be Sierra? Could it be some other functionality that blows ports? Any ideas?
Thanks a lot in advance!
