 I have a macOS user with permissions set to allow apps downloaded from
 'App Store and identified developers'.

 This user is also a 'Parental Controls' account, which means each
 executable is checked separately on open.

 When I open Tor Browser, I get a message saying that tor (which on macOS
 is a shell script) is not signed. This seems to go away after the app is
 approved via parental controls.

 (There might not be anything we can do to fix this issue.)
