Tor Browser fails to start
When trying to launch tor browser it almost always does not work for me. I'm running a windows 7 home premium OS, very recently freshly installed and the problem persisted through onto the clean install of win 7.
When I run tor browser, both the tor.exe and firefox.exe processes start up and I can see them running in my task manager processes tab. Despite this, the tor browser window never appears. Attempting to start the browser again results in a "browser is already running" error. Only way to get round this is to manually kill the firefox.exe process and try again. Sometimes after several attempts the browser launches without any apparent changes.
I suspect this may be something to do with file permissions and having read/write access based on various things I've seen whilst googling this problem but I could be making that up completely. On occasion, moving the whole browser bundle to a new directory seems to fix the problem temporarily. Currently I have it in my user folder.
Tor browser version 4.0.4 at current although the problem has been persisting for a few versions.
