I have downloaded the Tor Browser, mounted the .dmg file, copied the application to the application folder (as well as the desktop and a thumb-drive on subsequent efforts) and am able to launch the application without error. However, once open I am faced with a screen describing connection options. My internet connection is not censored or proxied and should not require a bridge for connection. When choosing "Connect" to establish a direct connection to the Tor network the entire application immediately closes. No window pops up to indicate a connection is being attempted, and no browser ever appears. Activity monitor shows no activity associated with the Tor browser.

I have removed and reinstalled to various locations.
I have redownloaded from project tor. I have turned off my firewall entirely (and then back on) to no avail. I have attempted to configure a bridge (despite other local devices being able to connect to Tor without issue).

No matter what I do upon any effort to connect Tor Browser application closes immediately.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Do you know how to use the terminal? If so, could you try starting the application from there (on the command line)? This would hopefully provide some form of logging... – Richard Horrocks Mar 5 '16 at 16:39
