Yes, it's a known issue. Modern versions of Firefox based browser need a more complete OpenGLES implementation than the software based distributed with Replicant. The next Replicant 6 0004 will fix this, until then you can ask in the IRC channel how to install a development version.

Jeremy Rand and Jookia wrote a patch that should fix this, but we don't currently have official ROM builds for it. Here's the issue that causes Tor Browser to crash: https://redmine.replicant.us/issues/1844
adjtm in the Replicant IRC posted a link to some experimental builds that have a modified version of the patch. You can find the ROMs here: https://luddit.es/android/replicant6experimental/

I tested Tor Browser on Replicant's 6.0 0004 rc1 which can be downloaded here: https://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/replicant/images/replicant-6.0/0004-rc1/
The browser opens up and seems like it should work, but I am running into this bug, which doesn't look to be Replicant specific: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/32723
I'll try to remember to update this forum thread once that bug is fixed and Tor Browser once again works properly on Replicant.
