ah, that i should have been able to figure out
ok, tried it, and the tor browser came up and I am at the point where I was before that torbrowser gives me an “unable to connect” error when trying to connect to localhost:33411
I just re-checked my notes, and then checked the default browser and when I do
user@host:~$ xdg-settings get default-web-browser
so I am not sure about the issue because I am able to start up firefox-esr… sigh.
Anyway, for now what is working is just to manually start up ff, then go to localhost:33411
then I am on my way. Ah the things we do for love (of mailpile in this case).
Thanks again for your patience and if there is anything I can test or more output I can give to help the bug please let me know.
