Comment (by TorontoBoy):

 about:addons include these, all enabled:
 -HTTPS Ecerywhere
 -Adblock Plus

 I disabled Adblock Plus yesterday, and today Tor browser is working. Today
 I re-enabled Adblock Plus, closed and then reopened Tor Browser, and after
 a 5 second delay Tor Browser started working again, and I can browse as

 Before today the green onion icon to the left of the address bar, the one
 to get a new identity or a new tor circuit, was missing. It has now
 returned. I do not know why, as I did not do any update since Tor browser
 would not work.

 Anyway, my Tor Browser now works, but I still don't know why it stopped
 working. Should I not be using Adblock Plus on Tor Browser?

 Thanks all for your help. Please close this thread.
