 > First issue: it looks like you're using the torbrowserlauncher deb? That
 isn't made by us, so you might have better luck filing a ticket about it
 in the debian bts. But alas, I expect you won't have much luck there
 > Second issue: is making tor browser your default browser even supposed
 to work? That is, are there any howtos out there that explain how to do it
 in a way that's actually safe? I have seen several people wanting to do
 this, and each time they hacked together something that was really unsafe.

 #20811 is relevant.
