 Replying to [comment:2 TimeForGoToBed]:
 > As with the OP, when I start the Tor Browser firefox.exe (I also have
 the normal Firefox on this system, and it works fine) with -console
 -jsconsole, I get no console output (do I need to change some log level to
 be more verbose or something?).

 Yes. You need to set `extensions.torlauncher.logmethod` and
 `extensions.torbutton.logmethod` to `0` and ideally at least
 `extensions.torlauncher.loglevel` to `0` as well. You can do that in your
 `about:config`. If I (re)-start Tor Browser now on the command line with
 `firefox.exe -console` a console window pops up with Tor Launcher debug
 output. Please add that as well to this ticket.
