I downloaded the latest version of Tor.

In Data/Tor/torrc I added the following:

ControlPort 9051
HashedControlPassword <generated from tor>

But once I have this, the tor browser does not start up. I get a message that says "Could not connect to control port" (or something to that effect).

When I remove the ControlPort line, the browser starts up fine. Am I missing something?
