I followed a tutorial and now I have Homebrew
tor running in the background at all times for use by an unrelated application.
But now I can't use Tor Browser.
tor into Terminal and I get this
Is Tor already running? message. So I'm guessing only one instance of
tor can run at a time.

I want to use Tor Browser without having to disable my background service. How can I have my cake and eat it too?
