Comment (by mcs):

 Thank you for posting the debug output. The reason Tor Browser works fine
 when run from the desktop is because new configuration is used in that

 This line from your log indicates that your other torrc file is now
  Jun 12 19:29:21.759 [warn] Failed to parse/validate config: Unknown
 option 'ControlPort'. Failing.

 My best guess is that Tor Launcher failed to clean up your `torrc` file
 correctly after the upgrade to 7.0 (see #20761 for the backstory).

 Can you please attach a copy of the file /Users/stefan/Library/Application
 Support/TorBrowser-Data/Tor/torrc to this ticket? And can you also post
 the contents of any other files whose names begin with `torrc` that are
 located in that same folder? Doing so should help us debug this problem so
 we can avoid it happening again.
