New Stable Tor Browser Bundles

The stable Tor Browser Bundles have all been updated to the latest Tor 0.2.2.38 stable release.

https://www.torproject.org/download

Tor Browser Bundle (2.2.38-1)

  • Update Tor to 0.2.2.38
  • Update NoScript to 2.5
  • Update HTTPS Everywhere to 2.1

I got a XSS warning using Torland2 at 37.130.227.134 as an exit node
(Fingerprint $332895D092C2524A3CDE8F6E1498FFE665EBFC34)
while browsing a site that otherwise does not cause alerts.

Been experiencing this too on and off recently with check.torproject.org. Still experience it when not connecting through the browser bundle. Maybe a problem at the website's end.

I've been unable to log into Disqus since I downloaded the latest Tor version. I can't type anything into the username and password boxes. I'm a new Tor user, so might have something set wrong, though I was able to access Disqus prior to the latest version.

Thanks if anyone has any suggestions.

Hi,

until today I was using Tor 0.2.2.37 in Linux Opensuse 12.1, and it worked fine.

Today I have downloaded and extracted the latest version of Tor 0.2.2.38. When I start it, only the Vidalia control panel appears, but the browser doesn`t.

So I went back to the old version of Tor 0.2.2.37, and it works fine again. Of course, it would be better to use the latest version. Could you please take a look after the browser connection in the latest Linux version?

Thanks in advance.

What's the point of using an "anonymous" filter to view something from outside the U.S.A. when you get a message such as:

SORRY!
This video is not available in your country.

I get that Tor is focused on users not being identified and I get that it's a big deal for those who want to perform secretive Internet research, or users who are located within nations that apply Internet censorship -- but Tor should get out of the nanny role for those who simply want to watch a video from a website that blocks viewership outside of its country.

Tor wants users to donate for its service, but Tor should perform the same services that other VPNs do for a price. It should allow users to select a country from which to generate an IP address and make websites think the user is located within its national boundaries. And if watching geo-restricted videos through a paid VPN service without incurring bugaboos is possible, it should also be possible with Tor.

Sure. The blog content is under the same license (CC-BY) as the rest of the Tor website. Send us mail to let us know what language you have in mind -- we might even be able to set you up like the fa-blog.torproject.org or ar-blog.torproject.org volunteers.

Yes I saw that too. Personally I excluded all torland nodes, I think they are suspicious... Like the 149.9.x.x nodes, jalopy ninix etc... very suspicious !

Hi all - Should I be able to use Vidalia bundle based on Firefox inside a Virtual PC window (32-bit XP) running under 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate? - It just seems to freeze on a blank screen, and the Test mode never completes good or bad either :(

"No answer" was to strange reply! - So I guess I should just give up?

Is it a coincidence that my IMac automatically shuts down when browsing the internet after I installed Tor and Vidalia? Since I installed Tor, the IMac shuts down when browsing. The shutoffs seem random. Please shed some light on this matter. Thanks.

anyone else getting this?.....not-a-virus:NetTool.Win32.Tor.d.

since ive updated tor it wont run!!! it gets stuck halfway loading. i look in the file and it says modified sept !!???

Keep getting "Sorry. You are not using To" from Vidalia 0.2.20.

I'm running vidalia on a win7 platform. Tried to change my torrc file, but failed since the addition couldn't be saved. Open tor,exe and vidalia.exe to my ms win firewall, I've disabled my proxy, since it is in a script format and I failed to find out how to incorporate it in the tor configuration, but nothing changed.
I tried the tor bundle. A tor connection was established, but since no flash is allowed, this option doesn't serve my needs.

Is there anything else I can do?

Hello...I am new to Tor and not too computer savy either...Is there any way that the IP address generated can be pinpointed to a specific country like Canada instead of being from across the ocean? I am trying to get info from a local site but they won't let me because my IP address is not "local." Thanks so much in advance for your help.
