I need a script to open Tor browser at specific web site.

  • I think the command would be similar to firefox u.r.l (where u.r.l is page URL). – N0rbert Dec 11 '17 at 9:30

I assume you downloaded the tor browser from torproject.org and installed it following the Linux Instructions, then you can simply run the starter with a URL as an argument and it will open it:

./start-tor-browser.desktop google.com

If you don't want to use the .desktop file, run it directly with

./Browser/start-tor-browser --detach google.com

or using an absolute path (substitute LANG with your language code):

/path/to/tor-browser_LANG/Browser/start-tor-browser --detach google.com

  • What if the Tor Browser is already open? Then I get the error "Tor Browser is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Tor Browser process, or restart your system." – lefterav Apr 16 at 11:35
