the problem started when I was messing around with iptables and tbb connect to the node directory, so I killed the process and when i started torbrowser-launcher again it prompted me to reset tbb, i agreed and it started regular firefox instead of tbb. I ran apt-get purge torbrowser-launcher and then installed it again. tbb launcher reported that the tbb profile was missing. I deleted the tbb directory and reinstalled tbb
launcher again. It downloaded and verified it, but I have the problem I described above
*tbb couldnt connecy
another problem is that the launcher installs tbb again every time
and the weird thing is that the file does exist...
