I have a problem with my TOR. I don't know it's a bug in TOR or a problem in my windows!
sometimes when I run TOR, the little box appears in the top left of the screen (as usual) and its connection bar also gets full, but the TOR browser doesn't appear on the screen!
when I open my task-manager, I see TOR program and its browser are open (fig 1) but as you can see in fig. 2, they haven't come onto the screen and the application tab (who represent open soft-wares on the screen) is empty!
is this a bug in TOR or just a problem in my windows? does anyone else have the same experience?
p.s. in these cases (10% happens), I always close TOR browser from the task manager and re-run TOR and the problem is gone! telling this to say, this doesn't hurt me at all like a real and serious problem, but I though it would be better to make a feedback to make you better and stronger.
thank you for all your efforts.
a fan :)

Does anyone know a simple way to signup/login to Tumblr while using Tor (without enabling plug-ins)? Thank you.

Hey it would be great if there was simply an update button - icon, to click on to install updates without having to select the Firefox option, too many pop ups. Tired of these enter-ties bombarding us with adds we don't need or wish to receive, especially when we are paying for the service in the first place.

I am a big fan or Tor Browser and a big fan of internet privacy, it's getting harder and harder to acquire this concept so thank you for this facility, as it is truly appreciated.
