 from the command-line on macOS?

 The first thing I would check is whether any copies of `tor.real` (the Tor
 daemon that is part of Tor Browser) are still running in the background.
 To do that:
 * Open a command shell by starting the Terminal application (press
 `Cmd+Space` and then type `Terminal` followed by `Return`, or look in
 /Applications/Utilities for Terminal and open it).
 * Within the command shell, type `ps -A | grep tor.real` and see if
 anything is found.
 * If one or more `tor.real` processes are found, terminate all of them by
 typing `killall tor.real` and then try opening Tor Browser again.

 Assuming the above does not fix the problem, you can see tor messages from
 the command line by opening a command shell (see above) and then starting
 Tor Browser's `firefox` process from the command shell. For example, if
 you have placed Tor Browser in a folder on your desktop named TB, you
 would type the following command to start the browser (and then look at
 what messages are output): `~/Desktop/TB/Tor\
