Don't k3if this is 3bug or what but Tor update broke my computer. I allowed an update about a day ago and have not been able to access the internet since then. The ISP see my computer online sending and receiving, but I cannot access the internet. rebooting and resetting the computer and router doesn't help. I've run out of ideas about a possible solution.
Ii am now afraid to do any further Tor updates, which probably means I won't be able to use Tor.
I looked at the support portal but I don't see anything there that might help.

The 'Guard' IP doesn't change between Tor Browser (TB) restart or when clicking on 'New Identity' (NI) or keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+U.

  1. So far I've re-installed 9.0.4 on top of the old 9.0.4, which didn't resolve the issue.
  2. Then I delete all the files and folders from Tor directory, except Profile directory, and re-installed 9.0.4. Still same problem

Last time this happened was during a 8.5.x (or maybe 8.4.x). I can't recall what was the solution (but I think someone suggested, just installing again over the old version), but that did resolve the problem, until now. I don't know which version of 9.0.x started this.

dispite that i have set security lvl to safest,i will get this when i enter a dark web site ; WARNING: You have javascript enabled in your browser! Disable this for your own safety!
Having Javascript enabled may result in having your private IP leaked and having your computer fingerprinted! so for now i will not use TOR for anything,you can roll back or fix it so script show allowed or default/denied too while you are at it

The download function was broken. When it went to the last second of the download, it stopped and didn't complete. Please fix it.

Probably in order to sell their VPN services some companies are saying that IPV6 can leak your real IP.

I see that under about:config network.dns.disableIPv6 the default is false.

Would it not be better to have this changed to true or, for the security-minded user, should he/she change this setting to 'true'.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you

When I requested a bridge it failed to connect to any site. the bridges used below
[bridges lines removed, please don't share bridges publicly]

Auto-play on youtube works for me. Media auto-plays except if I open it in a new tab in the *background* that was not the active tab I was looking at. Autoplay of media is disabled in tor browser on first opening a page (any page, not simply youtube) because autoplay lowers privacy. If you accept the risk to enable it, you can read Mozilla's help here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1238033
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Media/Autoplay_guide

That is, unless you are talking about Noscript's yellowish layer covering media you haven't allowed in Noscript. Make sure you are on Standard security level unless you know how to configure Noscript.

The new version of tor shrinked the window. It brings an awful user experience to me. Please give me an option to turn it off. How to off it.

when you maximize tor browser, there's a gray border around the content. I know that you're not supposed to maximize but I use tor for non-sensitive things to help those who do sensitive things and I'd really just like a proper browser window
