 That does not seem to be the case based on the contents of your torrc.

 Can you reproduce this problem using a clean copy of Tor Browser that you
 download from https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/8.0.8/ ?
 Can you configure tor to generate debug logging and make that available?
 That should help one of the Network Team members to debug this problem.
