 On windows server 2008r2, I deleted IE and the related web platform (IIS,
 etc.) to reduce the attack footprint. I browse from portable Firefox
 (quantum) without issues for the most part but some websites are too
 cumbersome with its current configuration and tor worked adequately for
 those until this latest update. I created a fresh portable directory and
 updated the browser from the tor menu. When it restarts, it fails to
 connect to the control port. What has changed in the update to lose this
 connection handshake and is there a workaround? A screenshot can be
 provided upon request. I returned to the prior version for the time being.
