I’m experiencing a problem with tor on macOs. I installed tor with

$ brew install tor. 

When I launch it with

$ /usr/local/opt/tor/bin/tor 

I get stuck at 10%, e.g.,

Sometimes the connection is completed after a very long while.

Please note that everything was working fine until this morning. Today, I installed Wireshark ($ brew install --cask wireshark) and I’m afraid that something weird happened upon that.

How can I troubleshoot and fix this problem?
