Ok, people on liberation-tech are reporting that they can run the bundle
if they right-click on it and go to "Properties->Compatibilty->Run in
Windows XP Compatibility mode."
If 'Compatibility Mode' works, While in compatibility mode, can you try
setting one or both of these to 'true' in about:config:
Then try without XP compatibility mode, and see if one or both allow you
to run without crashes?
It also looks like Mozilla hit a similar bug some years ago, and
maintains a blacklist of bad D2D drivers to disable D2D for:
I wonder if we somehow didn't pick up their D2D driver blacklist in this
Here's what I did:
1. Yes, running in XP SP3 compatibility mode allows TBB to start and not crash, however, the windows "Tor Network Settings" is blank and the program seems to have frozen.
2. Because I couldn't get the browser to load I edited the prefs.js file as so, and this worked:
P.S. Great fucking job on the update! Good job to all who put in effort. Really, that's impressive. However, please add the true NewNym function , as now I see it's not there in TorButton.
