Can you try this bundle? I made it for Windows to fix this problem -- the
automatic port selection in the new bundles is causing a lot of trouble, and
you can use this until we put out the new TBBs with the fix:https://archive.torproject.org/tor-package-archive/technology-preview/tor-browser-2.2.32-UNOFFICIAL-1_en-US.exehttps://archive.torproject.org/tor-package-archive/technology-preview/tor-browser-2.2.32-UNOFFICIAL-1_en-US.exe.asc
It just changes two configuration files (torrc and vidalia.conf) to disable the
automatic port selection. The official bundles will be coming out tomorrow.
