Nice. I have not heard someone trying to do that before.

Not sure what you mean with "works" but starting it this way will create
a new profile (or use an existing one) without any of the extensions
needed for Tor Browser (like Torbutton and HTTPS-Everywhere etc.) and
without tor and pluggable transports.

Commit bc305e697edb6860fe035e4b67fc5f027de237a5 in Tor Browser needs
this entity and Torbutton defines it. This is, again, a sign that you
are missing the extensions we ship in Tor Browser.

I'd be very much interested in looking at the results/dead-ends/issues
when using the deterministic builds approach. Might be good to document
your findings in #12631 which is the ticket for the ARM port of Tor Browser.
