Tor worked just fine for years then it now gives this message: (Tor browser does not have permission to acces the profile. Please adjust your file system permissions and try again.)

  • Seems like a permission problem. Delete Tor browser and install it in your desktop folder, see if that helps. – NeverMine17 Feb 24 '19 at 12:36

Ok. Had the same problem once. The issue is an user called "debian-tor" on Linux should own /var/lib/Tor and /etc/tor

You have to use chown as sudo

sudo chown -R debian-tor /var/lib/tor
sudo chown -R debian-tor /etc/tor

On windows, I believe the best solution is to check the permission of the folder Tor is in - allow all for everybody
