Since a couple of updates ago tor browser just doesn't launch. Does anyone else experience this? It worked perfectly for nearly a year. have tried reinstalling it.

I tried to reinstall it using the tor browser launcher and it stalls. Then I tried to $ sud dnf reinstall torbrowser-launcher

Did ABRT catch the crash of torbrowser-launcher? If so, it can be useful to upload a bug report (pretty much automated).

What you describe in the comments looks pretty much like this bug report

An update has been pushed to the repositories and you should receive it very soon. run sudo dnf --refresh upgrade. For F26 it is still in testing, so you would need a sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing update torbrowser-launcher. It's always good to give it a try and provide feedback for packages in testing.

btw, another option is to run torbrowser from torproject.org. After extracting the archive it's executable from your home folder, no "installation" required (updates within the program, not with dnf).

The update is working great I didnt have to do any of your commands just dnf update. Thank you. tor is reinstalled but i lost all my bookmarks. Any idea where they could be stored. I am asuming the tor directories changed with this update and thats why they are not there.

Sorry, no idea where torbrowser is even installed to when using the torbrowser-launcher package. I download torbrowser from torproject.org , extract the files to my home directory and everything is there.
