 Tor Browser downloaded some update yesterday. Today I started it and it
 showed a progress bar and a message like "Please wait a few moments while
 we apply the updates" and then the browser didn't start. Trying two start
 it manually in the command line causes:
 $ ./start-tor-browser.desktop -v
 Launching './Browser/start-tor-browser --detach -v'...
 XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/david/tor-browser_en-
 libmozsandbox.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
 Couldn't load XPCOM.

 I would have expected that the update was for
 [https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-browser-70a3-released 7.0a3],
 released yesterday. Bug I am not sure what exact version it thinks it is,
 because I see 7.0a1, 7.0a2, and 7.0a3 in various places when I grep:
 $ grep -rF '7.0a'
