Could not setup Tor

i tried reinstalling bisq and resetting it but still it doesnt work

This could mean so many things. If you provide details I will try to help. I’m using whonix so I have to play with Tor a lot.

Connecting to the Bisq network failed (reported error: Could not setup Tor).
Please check your internet connection or try to restart the application.

That’s all

No, it’s not all. You didn’t say what OS you’re using, or anything else. So I will not try to help you.

Try to update to 1.9.9 and try again, connectivity issues tend to be solved by themselves as Tor is not very reliable.
