Before running makepkg, you must do this (as normal user):

$ gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys torbrowser@torproject.org

If you want to update tor-browser from AUR without AUR helpers you can run in a terminal:

$ tor-browser -u

That's caused by the same glibc problem. You can downgrade glibc, use an alpha version of tor-browser, or wait for the fix.

tor-browser refuses to play h264 videos for me. I checked html5test.com and they say that my tor-browser does not support the h264 codec. Optional dependency gst-plugins-good is still installed, tho.

It used to work fine, but stopped working a week or two ago. Did some other software update break, or does tor-browser not locate the gstreamer plugins? how do I troubleshoot this?

Thanks for the updates folks, we are tracking the issue on the tor-browser gitlab.

The easiest workaround at the moment is to downgrade to the last 2.32(-5) glibc.

Once a real solution is posted we'll ensure it lands here as well.

An update to this, looks like this is an issue affecting Arch users who have upgraded glibc.

https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser/-/issues/40328

Some workarounds:

"rany has confirmed a glibc downgrade to 2.32 fixes the issue.

Another user on an arch-based distro (Manjaro 20.2.1 Nibia, Kernel: x86_64 Linux 5.10.15-1-MANJARO) reports the same issue and reports that the alpha TB fixes it."

I'd like to report a fault, same as previous two users, except on a broader scale. I can no longer view videos and even github pages are formatted and displayed incorrectly.

@zoltanszabo, I'm running into the exact same thing, including when I download Tor Browser from the Tor Project's website. In addition to your experience, when you navigate to beta.protonmail.com I just get a white screen. It never loads.

The latest update (2021-02-04) seems to break / be incompatible with the ProtonMail login (https://mail.protonmail.com/login): the process stays at the "Loading ProtonMail..." animation. It has been working like a charm for years. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

It seems /usr/bin/tor-browser sometimes lacks read permission for users not in the file's group i.e. 0751 in chmod. Here's patch to fix it: https://gist.github.com/nosada/12b272b659cb1c2ddc4130d0bd2d003a

Installed from AUR; error at verifying PGP key.

Used @grufo's command, worked straight away.

@grufo you are right, that's easier.

For those who don't want to copy links: Create the file ~/.local/share/applications/tor-browser.desktop with this content:

[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Tor Browser (en-US) Exec=/usr/bin/tor-browser --allow-remote %u Icon=tor-browser Categories=Network; Comment=Anonymous browsing using Firefox and Tor

This overwrites the existing desktop-file and persists through updates.
