Yes, adding "DisableNetwork 0" to torrc doesn't seem to work. I just
nuked the state file. But if the problem reoccurs after reinstalling Tor
browser, there must be something else causing it. If obfs4 bridges don't
help, I'm rather at a loss.

Is there another uplink that you could test on? Alternatively, you could
try connecting through a VPN. If either eliminates the problem, you know
that your normal uplink is at fault.
