Re: [tor-talk] Tor Browser Bundle 3.0alpha1 test builds

Hi Mike,

In short: This is awesome!

I suggest to get some things fixed before you do a blog post :-)

32-bit vs. 64-bit:
When I try to run the linux32 version on my 64bit system, it just says
"Tor Browser exited abnormally. Exit code: 255". This should be fixed, a
*lot* of users pick the wrong one. Probably the same is true for Mac. I
wrote a small patch for the launcher that should detect this properly
for Linux, and is easy to port to Mac. It's been in needs_review for 3
months: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/3841

Every first time I run it after extraction, it immediately launches Tor
Browser and shows what looks like the default Mozilla start page. When I
try to open any other page, it gives me a proxy error.
When I close it, and run it again,
- en_US: the Tor Network Settings wizard comes up. Tor Browser still
opens the default Mozilla startpage, but browsing works. "about:tor" is
not a valid address.
- de: shows correct startpage, about:tor works

1. I pushed a new update that gets rid of the generic "Welcome" page.
Should have done this long ago. Sorry.
2. My script should use an onion icon for the installer executable.

At least the German translation should see some improvements before you
do a final release. I'll look into Transifex within the next days. The
blog post announcing the alpha should call for help in that regard.

Some dialogs cut off text, for example the (quite prominent) "Connecting
to the Tor network" dialog.
