 Replying to [comment:11 Sherief]:
 > I figured out why this happens and actually reproduced it too on my OS X
 laptop. It turns out that users are trying to open Tor Browser from the
 .dmg file without dragging it to their Applications/ folder.

 That problem is now covered by #14631.

 > We don't see this on Windows anymore so I suggest closing this ticket.

 I am OK with closing this ticket, but Mike did see this problem on Linux
 (see comment:9) and I do not think we know why the problem is no longer
 being reported by Windows users.

 Mike, what do you think?
