New Tor Browser Bundles

The Tor Browser Bundles have been updated to Vidalia 0.2.15. The OS X and Linux bundles have Torbutton 1.4.4, but a hotfix for Windows was released with 1.4.4.1 because 1.4.4 had a minor issue that prevented the Windows bundle from going to https://check.torproject.org.

https://www.torproject.org/download

Tor Browser Bundle (2.2.33-3)

  • Update Vidalia to 0.2.15
  • Update Torbutton to 1.4.4.1
  • Update NoScript to 2.1.4
  • Remove trailing dash from Windows version number (closes: #4160)
  • Make Tor Browser (Aurora) fail closed when not launched with a TBB profile
    (closes: #4192)

Got Polipo hack working with 2.2.34-1. After reinstalling the old version in the same location and checking settings, I found the path info was prepended differently than the one used earlier (literlal path) and changed. Even after Polopo started on 8118, Torbutton select box for Polipo was still disabled, but.I was able to configure the proxy manually and Socks 4a has been verified in message window traffic.

How do you install polipo/privoxy on tor? can anyone help me out with this. tor seems to take an "expert" level comprehension to figure out.

Cause I'm having the same problems. having a hard time ripping images from reddit and imgur.

Bottom line, the new tor doesn't work. I run and extract it but my IP stays the same. Should have left well enough alone.

I'm using the newest TOR browser with Windows 7 64 bit and haven't been able to access any sites. The check.torproject.org site says that my browser is properly configured for TOR, but when I try to go to any sites (i know cause i can get to them from other computers not on 64 bit) I keep getting the message:

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at_______________

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Aurora is permitted to access the Web.

I can't find 'Aurora' anywhere in my computer by searching so can't allow it to go through my firewall. What am I missing here?

Thanks

Aurora just uses Tor, so all you'd need to allow through your firewall is Tor. If you tell torbutton to do 'new identity' and then try your failed sites again, do they work? Meaning, perhaps there is an overloaded relay in the circuit that isn't allowing exiting to that site for some reason. Or the site isn't allowing tor exits to talk to it.

i just tried 'new identity' to the same effect, anything else i can try?

i've tried with the full tor suite (separate vidalia, polipo etc) and it did the same thing-check.torproject says i'm configured but no sites will connect. is this a 64 bit problem?

I'm having a similar problem on Mac 10.6 32-bit. It used to work fine however now no matter how many new identities I try or what .onion sites I try (normal www sites work) it comes up with the same cannot connect error. any other ideas of what I could try? or a good test .onion site that people know is reliable to test my connection. thanks

Why is "temporarily allow" not available in TTB's NoScript? It is only possible to "Allow" which is less safe because that creates a permanent allow and also a history of allowed sites. "Temporary Allow" would be safer and more not leave a record of allowed sites.

Temporarily Allow is available, you simply have to select it to be available in NoScript options.

I'm using OSX 10.6.6., and I seem to have a serious problem. Well, if not serious, it's hella annoying to say the least.

Vidalia says that I'm running the 0.2.15 version, and it also says Tor 0.2.2.35 so everything should be up to date. Using FF with Tor seemed too much of a hassle, so I switched to Aurora that came with the bundle. After some serious work setting up the browser (transferring bookmarks and add-ons like NoScript, AdBlock Plus, HTTPS Everywhere etc.), I finally got it running somewhat smoothly with the settings I'm used to (it still doesn't remember window positions or zoom level or site passwords). However, it keeps crashing. All of a sudden, out of the blue, with no warning. No cursed beachball of death or anything, just an announcement "Aurora has suddenly stopped functioning". After this, I have to stop Tor from the control panel and hope it will start nice and smooth. I have found no other way to start a browser after the crash. If Tor doesn't start properly, all that is left is to reboot. In addition to this, my regular FF seems to get nowhere and can't seem to establish any connections (it just gives the Privoxy page with 503 error). This is really, really frustrating. Is there something I'm doing wrong or is there some poor soul I can blame for all this?

I may have noticed what I do to instigate the crash: if I happen to move the cursor while clicking on a link (whether it's intentional or not or whether the cursor moves across the screen or just one pixel), instantaneous crash ensues. As mentioned before, it's slightly annoying (throwing the laptop out of the window and having visions of forcefeeding the broken bits to software engineers and committing various other extremely messy and violent acts to a big crowd of them kinda annoying).

And, like said, there's no other way to start the browser again except stopping and restarting Tor. After the crash, your normal announcement appears, but if you click on "Restart Aurora", first I get a message saying "Aurora is not your default browser, would you like to change your settings?", and the browser window flashes on the screen for a second, disappears and _then_ I have to stop the Tor and restart it. The interrupted Aurora stays on except that it doesn't respond, and I have to end the process through force quitting.

Dear people, what to do?

GetRight now cannot use both HTTP and SOCKS 5 proxy, and Firefox lacks basic resume download functionality. Terrific.

Maybe it's been reported here, but Torbutton has an odd conflict with Firefox 12. When I have the Tor add-on (1.4.5.1) "enabled" (but not actually using Tor), I can't drag and drop bookmarks. I'm using an iMac 10.6.8, and when I pull down "Show All Bookmarks" Firefox normally lets me drag and drop bookmarks for sorting, putting in folders, etc. An enabled Tor add-on prevents that. I can still delete bookmarks, and I can copy and paste them, but I can't drag and drop.

Works fine when I disable the add-on, but when I enable it, drag and drop goes away.

I have the same problem. Windows XP SP3 & Firefox 12. Disabling Torbutton solves the problem. There are numerous others on various sites that have the same issue. Most of them fix it by disabling Torbutton. Quite annoying. (Are these comments read by Tor developers?)

I've downloaded and jettisoned Tor so many times and I still cannot get it to work. I'm using Mac OSX, downloaded the bundle from your site, I'm not computer savvy so watched the video etc. and it all seemed so easy. I'm able to download and successfully open torbrowser which tells me I am connected showing ip address etc but the moment I try and browse different benign websites it crashes and I have to re-start the whole bloody thing again. What am I doing wrong? I so wanted to use this but it isn't stable.

I have a few questions.

1. Why isn't NoScript blocking scripts globally, by default?
2. Why isn't the DNT header ticked in the options?
