You can also just run meek-client without the Firefox helper. It has a
standalone mode. Just change the torrc line

ClientTransportPlugin meek exec ./TorBrowser/Tor/PluggableTransports/meek-client-torbrowser -- ./TorBrowser/Tor/PluggableTransports/meek-client


ClientTransportPlugin meek exec ./TorBrowser/Tor/PluggableTransports/meek-client
