 Replying to [comment:8 user]:
 > 1. debian-8 bridges with outbound firewall restrictions --> no riot.im
 > 2. reinstall and then update whonix workstation VM --> riot.im still
 > 3. copy torbrowser from whonix VM to debian-9 VM, redo connection setup
 --> no riot.im crash
 > Regarding desktop notifications, the choice doesn't matter.
 > Regarding the difference between whonix torbrowser vs non-whonix, all I
 know is the whonix version is preconfigured for a tor instance that runs
 in a separate whonix gateway VM (which is why I had to redo the connection
 setup in (3)).

 You could try to find out what is happening with running Tor Browser under
 `gdb` with debug symbols, see:

 Seems not to be a Tor Browser bug per se.
