There's some bug in this version of the tor client that drives me nuts, even when I'm connected to my network at some point I get:

  1. [notice] Tor has not observed any network activity for the past 80 seconds. Disabling circuit build timeout recording.</p>
  2. <p>[warn] Failed to find node for hop #1 of our path. Discarding this circuit.<br />

And then I have to restart the browser so that Tor bootstraps again and starts working again. This happened with Tor 0.3.2.1 but it intensified a lot with the recent version (I'm using Tor with bridges FWIW) Hope this bug gets higher priority.

Admin, my 1st hop is the same (Canada) everytime i use TOR. In the past there was a map of the hops and they were different everytime. The only way for me to change the first hop is to uninstall TOR and then reinstall. There has to be an easier way,

Are there some document that could teach me to setup tor and meek for my existing Firefox? I downloaded TOR expert bundle and extracted meek from tor-browser but don't know how to chain them up.

I'm currently using tails and I'm wondering if it's possible to install the experimental tor browser while keeping the stable tor browser?
