Hi,
probably half off-topic but Tails have no simple open request.

With old Tails0.20 on .onion-sites i see in Vidalia a lot of 4-circles connections.
With 0.20.1 only the normal 3-circles.
Whats the difference?

Second, on lower memory PCs with new Tails0.20.1 the DVD-ROM/Writer(TAILS on DVD) is more often spinning(reading ?) as with Tails0.20.Therefore new TAILS -sometimes,e.g. Browser functions- reacts a little bit slower.The cause for this is the new Tor version(0.2.4.17-rc)? Tor0.2.4.17-rc needs more memory?

Thanks for reading.And answering(-:

Anyone having problem with using webmail?
I often get a message saying "Our security have detected a supsicious use of your account - chnge password immidiately or with i.e. hotmail - verify your account to continue.
I assume that the proxy is the main problem? or is it du to hackers on some of the end-nodes?
Its annoying to change mailprovider og password so often?
Another issue:
When using i.e Gmx.com's webmail I very often is disconnected and the page says that the connection is lost?
Any suggestions?

And not to forget: Tor is an awesome step into allowing people some privacy on the net - Thanx :-)

When testing Tor proxy settings (default settings) via the Tor button I keep getting the following errors, mostly the first error:

Local HTTP Proxy is unreachable. Is Polipo running properly?

Tor proxy test:TorDNSEL failure. Results unknown

Tor proxy test: HTTP error for check.torproject.org:500

What could be causing this?.

Also on startup https://check.torproject.org/?lang=en-US&small=1&uptodate=1 fails to load, I presume it's just overloaded or down though.

I had a very similar experience to "ATTENTION! ALERT!" (9/21, above). I downloaded 2.4.17-beta-2 and NIS (Norton Internet Security 2012) immediately quarantined it with a WS.Reputation.1. Here are the relevant details from the quarantine history:

[Me again:] I restored it from quarantine, but it begs the question: Norton had no problem with beta-1, what's up with beta-2? The signature was valid, by the way.

vidalia-relay-bundle-0.2.3.25-0.2.21-2.exe -- Today, the downloaded file does not have a valid signature.

"gpg: BAD signature from "Erinn Clark "

Using https://www.virustotal.com/, TrendMicro-HouseCall identifies this executable as containing "TROJ_GEN.F47V0801."

Can I get a confirmation on the signature and a second opinion?
