I have downloaded the most recent version of the Tor bundle 6.5.2 for Mac. When I open the Tor browser I get a message "the proxy server is refusing connections". I have followed the instructions (on YouTube and other sites) to set the Preferences>Advanced>Network>Settings>to Manual Proxy Configuration and select SOCKS Host 127.0.0.1 and Port 9150. I don't really know what a 'proxy' is or how to fix this so that i can use the browser.
So wierd. I faced this problem in my windows. I figured the issue could be similar with my tor browser aswell. The tor browser application is in a new folder in Desktop. Recently I move everything from my desktop to another new folder in my desktop. Started having this issue. I moved the files back to how it was and then tor started working. Bizarre. Hope this helps if anyone else is facing this issue on a windows.
I had the same issue and then I realized that I ignored the initial pop-up when starting Tor that suggests to move the downloaded
.dmg file to
Applications (just as @bradreaves recommends above in his comment).
Just a note to myself, because the
.dmg file was already in
Applications when the above window popped up after double clicking the
Click on the Tor Browser icon in the above window
Drag it in the Applications folder
