WIN XP. Firefox 6 is extremely slowly. It take minutes to load some tabs. Unable to work with version 2.2.32-3. Reinstalled the older version 1.3.28.

After I took your advice Erinn, and "I moved the Tor Browser folder to the desktop, and this is what happened after I double-clicked Start Tor Browser (2.2.32-3):"
======================== SEE ABOVE FOR THE REST,

I decided to try one of the older TBBs I hadn't erased, and this morning I was able to get online with "tor-browser-2.2.31-1-alpha_en-US."

Quite naturall, I still cannot get online with any TBB after that. Could that edition give you a clue to the real problem, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Also, is ther a big problem with using "tor-browser-2.2.31-1-alpha_en-US" until you get to the bottom of why "Tor Browser Bundle (2.2.32-3)" is causing problems for those who commented above including me?

Thanks

Hi, i recently started using the GNU/Linux Tor Browser Bundle. Unfortunately, since Firefox 6 and subsequent updates there's a REALLY IRRITATING FREEDOM DESTROYING BUG:

Preferences> Advanced> Update

I switch to "Ask me what i want to do" and hit "Close". All seems fine but when i restart the browser it's like i hadn't done anything!

The latest torbutton is not included in the vadalia package. Does vadalia need to be updated?

Hello. Please tell how to use download manager with tor now? With old torbrowser (1.3.28)+polipo i used HTTP proxy 127.0.0.1:8118 in download manager configuration.

I'm also having this similar problem with Internet Download Manager.

I used to be able to resume downloads and such, now i get connection refused on 8118 after updating my browser bundle.

Hi
Tor Browser Bundles works perfectly!
I have just one question.
Does my service provider can see that down (torrents) and pages that I opened?

Am I protected from that side?
Thank you

Just tried Expert Bundle tor-0.2.2.33-win32.exe on Win2k (+all cum updates).

This installs the new tor.exe on existing setup

When fired up by vidalia (0.2.10), Qt (4.6.2) it gives error and then fails:

Oct 10 11:40:34.109 [Warning] Warning from libevent: evsig_init: socketpair: Cannot assign requested address [WSAEADDRNOTAVAIL ]
Oct 10 11:40:34.109 [Warning] Warning from libevent: evthread_make_base_notifiable: socketpair: Cannot assign requested address [WSAEADDRNOTAVAIL ]
Oct 10 11:40:34.109 [Error] Error from libevent: event.c:1413: Assertion base failed in event_base_get_method

Obviously there a problem.. I was using tor (0.2.1.30) which still works when swapped back.

In the new Aurora version of tor downloads ARE IMPOSSIBLE without DISABLING TOR BUTTON.
it seems to be a great risk there.
Is there a way to encourage a TOR BUTTON update or patch to fix this error?

I'm also having this similar problem with Internet Download Manager.

I used to be able to resume downloads and such, now i get connection refused on 127.0.0.1 and port-8118 after updating my browser bundle.

What proxies to give in other applications like download managers and chrome for the latest tor bundle?

i apologize if this is not the best place to add this question. i am using the latest puppy linux version 5.2.8. The latest available pet package (apps specifically configured for puppy linux) for the tor browser used tor version 2.2.32-4. This did not worked and had many of the problems mentioned here, bootstrapped 100%, but tor still did not worked. I downgraded to the next latest version, 1.1.13, and I was able to use tor, double checking with IP addresses, and going to the "are you using tor" site.

My question is what am I giving up using version 1.1.13 vs. the 2.2.32-4? I don't have enough linux skills to compile and make work the latest tor version. Thanks so much.

Tor won't start, and I keep getting this error in the message log:

[Warning] Warning from libevent: evsig_init: socketpair: Connection refused [WSAECONNREFUSED ]

Vidalia tells me the connection was "actively refused by peer". How do I fix this?

TBB 2.2.35-8 works perfect in Windows XP SP3, but 2.2.35-9 does not, despite what I try. Not too worried about it for the moment.... I'll wait for a fix in the next update.
