Comment (by ilf):

 Have you tried it? This doesn't work for me:

 1. Start `/path/to/tor-browser_en-US/start-tor-browser --allow-remote`

 2. Try `/path/to/tor-browser_en-US/start-tor-browser

 3. Error:

 > Tor Browser is already running, but is not responding. To open a new
 window, you must first close the existing Tor Browser process, or restart
 your system.

 Same thing with `-new-tab`.
