Comment (by tom):

 x64 build: On first run; tor failed; noting:

 > 2/5/19, 16:46:34.346 [NOTICE] Bootstrapped 40% (loading_keys): Loading
 authority key certs
 > 2/5/19, 16:46:34.952 [WARN] ISO time "2019-02-05 16:00:00\r" was

 On second run (I ran firefox.exe directly but I don't think that mattered)
 it worked and I was able to load a website, youtube, play a video, and hit
 an onion site.

 x86 build: same problem with the authoritity certificates. On second run
 (this time I used the Start Tor Browser shortcut) it worked; again with a
 website, onion, and youtube. (I actually exited using IPv6 too!) I
 confirmed ASLR on the x86 build.

 All on Windows 10.
