 > Thanks for getting all of this information for us (since we cannot
 reproduce the problem ourselves, info from end-users is all we have to go

 Happy to help and thanks for giving us step to guide the users.

 > It does not make sense that no additional logging was produced.  When
 extensions.torbutton.loglevel = 4 (the default), about a dozen lines are
 logged during browser startup; with a setting of 0 about 100 lines are
 logged.  Please have someone try that experiment again (set
 extensions.torbutton.loglevel to 0, restart the browser, and send us the
 complete contents of the Browser Console log).

 I think extensions.torbutton.loglevel itself is broken (not passing params
 to tor correctly). I tested it myself I all I get is log level 4 [notices]
 and [warn] (even in the terminal).
 > Also, is it possible that some people are running an older version of
 Torbutton? (Kind of crazy, I know, but we did fix a similar problem to
 this bug in #13138.)  Please have them check that Torbutton version is installed (by checking about:addons).

 No. I am pretty sure they're running TB 4.0 unmodified installed in a
 different location than the default or I made sure they delete any older
 TB first.
