 > Is this the place to get Nightly builds from? Couldn't see anything on
 the regular dist/download URLs.

 Yes, although the changes for this ticket probably aren't in the latest
 nightlies (wait for the next builds).

 > Also installing Nightly alongside Stable/Alpha seems to break the
 browser for me on MacOS – any tips there? e.g. Should I be installing &
 running Tor Nightly in a VM instead?

 I am not sure how your browser broke, but you cannot run two copies of Tor
 Browser at the same time unless you change the ports used by the tor
 daemon. Also, it is best to avoid sharing browser profiles and other data
 between e.g., stable and nightly. On macOS, creating a folder for each
 .app is a good approach; that way, each copy of the browser will have its
 own `TorBrowser-Data` directory.
