Partnering with Mozilla
Mozilla announced that the Tor Project and the Center for Democracy & Technology will be part of their new privacy initiative called Polaris, a collaboration to bring even more privacy features into Mozilla’s products. We are honored to be working alongside Mozilla as well as the Center for Democracy & Technology to give Firefox users more options to protect their privacy.
Mozilla is an industry leader in developing features to support the user’s desire for increased privacy online and shares the Tor Project's mission of helping people protect their security online. At the core of Mozilla's values is the belief that individuals’ privacy cannot be treated as optional. We share this belief. Millions of people around the world rely on the protection of the Tor software and network to safeguard their anonymity. We appreciate companies like Mozilla that see the importance of safeguarding privacy. The Tor volunteer network has grown to the point that large companies can usefully contribute without hurting network diversity. The Tor network will get even better with Mozilla's help, and we hope that their participation will encourage even more organizations to join us.
The initial projects with Mozilla will focus on two areas:
The Tor Browser is built on the Firefox platform and we are excited to have the resources of Mozilla’s engineers to help us merge the many Firefox privacy fixes into the Mozilla codebase. The increased attention from Mozilla will give us time to focus on finding and fixing new issues rather than maintaining our fork.
Tor's network size constrains the number of users that can use Tor concurrently. In the short term, Mozilla will help address this by hosting high-capacity Tor middle relays to make Tor’s network more responsive and allow Tor to serve more users.
We believe that the Tor Browser is one of the best ways to protect privacy on the web and this partnership is a huge step in advancing people’s right to freedom of expression online.

Is there any technical solution to the Cloudflare approach?
I mean, if they really need a solution to avoid automated attacks to their customers' servers, is there a way to certify we're human without risks on privacy?
A temporary cookie would solve the problem (or at least mitigate it) but will make it possible to identify the browser.
Maybe also a proposal to Cloudflare to work with Tor team to solve the problem could help: their catpcha approach is reducing the accessibility of their customers' contents directly affecting their business.
It seems like all the other
It seems like all the other hosting providers can handle Tor users just fine, and have appropriate security measures in place to deal with malicious traffic regardless of its source. Maybe Cloudflare doesn't have as strong a security team as the other players.

I use Vtunnel over Tor to avoid the dumb Cloudflare abomination when needed. Even when vtunnel's encryption isn't the best it helps avoid piles of refuse like Cloudflare. Let's kick this load of crap in the trash.
Using a web-proxy or any
Using a web-proxy or any other proxy, for that matter, introduces any number of serious concerns.
Me too. Make a search for
Make a search for "bypass cloudflare" and you will find some valuable information about their architecture and how to bypass it. Bypassing cloudflare is however a "manual" process and it does not work for every cloudflare domain.
I found that, if you go to a www.domain.tdn that is hosted on cloudflare and you will see their (for me not working) captcha, then you may just type ftp.domain.tdn instead and you get access oftentimes (search for "bypass cloudflare" if you want to know the details).
However, first, this hack does not always work , and, second, problems remain for embedded links like images that are hosted by some Image hoster which in turn uses cloudflare but the Image is embedded in another site that you want to view. Then you won't get to see the image because the browser is presented with the captch page instead of the image and then of course does show nothing.
Cloudflare claims that restricted access for TOR users is not their fault, because site owners can in principle choose between different flavors of automatic blocking. It however seems that blocking everything suspicious (inlcuding TOR) is their default setting. Also, their blocking procedure that does not block TOR access is labeled s.th. like "block almost everything suspicious" whereas the stronger option is labeled "block everything suspicious". Why then should the website operator choose to only block _almost_ everything if he could easily block _everything_ suspicious? They should better Label the TOR enabled option s.th. like "block everything suspicious but allow anonymous access". This would be better to the point. Afterall it should be legitimate to be able to block anonymous access for some websites businesses, but I don't see why someone Image Hosting site wouldn't want to allow anonymous download of images.
I think, we would be much better off already if cloudflare decides to label their blocking options more appropriately.

I have a friend in China I keep in touch with. I want to introduce them to Tor, but I worry this will discourage them from using it. The people at Cloudflare are scum who know full well how much they're hurting Tor.

I appreciate your frustration but using such language and tone is counterproductive. It only makes the one using it appear immature and petulant.

Isn't raiding sites and routers more productive? Disrupting communications by falsifying connections more productive? What "product" nsa and others make? For sure they are terrorists and criminals. The more people understand that the better.
And I don't like that new "business letter style" - 'Dear ... friends your finest product is really wonderful and amusing. But I can't get full experience because it does not work.' - instead of simple 'you sell shit'. So keep it that way with these criminal scums.
Circumvent the Cloudflare-trolls by using a simple, free-to-use web proxy like www.my-proxy.com. It works most of them for viewing pages.
And notify the webmaster(s), that Cloudflare's just horrible. Never waste time on their tasks!
Use of such proxies
Use of such proxies introduces serious risks.
https://internetdefenseleague.org/ - Attention Required!
I just wanted to visit website linked from torproject.org.
https://internetdefenseleague.org/ uses Cloudflare. What the hell...
I have found out how
I have found out how Cloudflare works.
The author of this claims to be the CEO of CloudFlare. So, take it with caution.
It acts as a Firewall, DNS-server, caching/filtering reverse proxy, router and uses some type of NAT. The websites using it have 2 URLs from CF as their authoritative name servers. It may even use DPI, record the traffic and meta data. So the issue is how to circumvent a reverse proxy.
Reverse proxies are common place in the head-end infrastructure of organisations. They route web (HTTP and HTTPS) protocols from an external request to one of several internal web servers.
This means your browser gets the ip of Cloudflare which requests content from the website and delivers it to your browser. So content comes from CF instead of the website directly. Since the IP you get returned is one of CF it isn't simple DNS-blocking. A whois delivers IPs of CF.
Note that designating CloudFlare as your authoritative name servers doesn't change anything else about your website's ecosystem. Your registrar remains your registrar. Your hosting provider remains your hosting provider. However, because we are your authoritative name server, we can begin cleaning and accelerating your traffic.
Cleaning means censorship and filtering out actual malicious traffic.
You can view our global CloudFlare network map at:
After a visitor's browser has done the initial DNS lookup, it begins making requests to retrieve the actual content of a website. These requests are directed to the IP address that was returned from the DNS lookup. Before CloudFlare, that would have been 188.8.131.52, with CloudFlare as the authoritative name server that would be 184.108.40.206 (or some other address depending on what CloudFlare data center is closest to the user). CloudFlare's frontline servers running on that IP address receive the request and perform analysis on it. We scan to see if the visitor appears to be a threat based a number of characteristics including the visitor's IP address, what resource they are requesting, what payload they are posting, how frequently they're making requests, etc.
How many dumb people keep
How many dumb people keep keys from there houses at cloudflare?
Well I believe everybody who delegate there's own services are imbeciles. By the way is it 'legal' to hack dns traffic? Or are they just criminals?
Then where is the great nsa? Was cloudflare raided? I believe I saw some commercial https site unexpectedly change the location - and I stop using it. Seems they start use this criminal service.
So lets new round start - split dns? Just like browsers UA. - I don't like you and i will send you fake data, feed you viruses etc.
And tor devs what about fake collector? Or service like 'our network will prevent you from connecting to spy sites'? And 'our dns will authoritative response to you query based on artificial algorithm for all sites'?
"How many dumb people keep

It's great that Mozilla is

Well they need something
Well they need something like svn with option to view previous revisions. In that case i'm fully agree with you. Till then 'long-running account' can be compromised and data be lost. With or without tor... Try to explain that to them.

I don't think so. At least we are still trying to get all or the most relevant patches into Firefox mainline to get the privacy of all Firefox users enhanced, too. It will take some time, though.

Any love for the ricochet IM , onionshare and tails ?
Well, I guess this's the
Well, I guess this's the best news I heard this year! I'm no fan of Mozilla but...
But that ain't why I called.
I've been having issues, this year, with TBB's ability to open. Betimes I needed to log off the system to clear the failed .exe an' try for a second time to get connected.
TBB 4.0.0 too was a bust.
With TBB 4.0.1 I found it necessary to avoid designating an alternative folder for downloading data for this TBB version to operate without crashing the browser - which then requires re-installation.
But the .exe sequence is now seamless. It don't even require that I clear the task bar of wip links. It jus' leaps into action! I retried TBB 3.6.6. Same ol' story of draggin' its heels.
So, good job! Well done!
An' well done with y'alls Mozilla negotiations. We be proud of y'all!
Enjoy the holiday season. Y'all deserve it!
Your issue with 4.0.1 should
Your issue with 4.0.1 should be fixed in the next release. See https://bugs.torproject.org/13558 for the details.
I've read that there
I've read that there currently is too much middle relay capacity compared to the available exit nodes. While I do appreciate Mozilla's efforts, what is this going to achieve?
well - google.nsa have entry
well - google.nsa have entry node, mosilla middle and you win - you can tell them to select exit node!!! Some press on devs to tell you it's one node what you need and you have the nsa team at you toilet to get you some paper.
I'll be as clear as i can
I'll be as clear as i can with this:
If you are using tor, and you genuinely want to stay anonymous because of life and death circumstances, then you had better know the technology in and out, do your research, practice, practice, practice, and you should have much less worry than tor getting the resources it needs from the most solid browser ever distributed
Exit nodes are more
Exit nodes are more valuable, but more middle nodes is not harmful. The reason for this is that stable middle nodes are also guards, and we *do* need more honest, trustworthy guards. Having more guards effectively put up by mozilla reduces the strain on exit nodes because they have to act as guards themselves less and are able to put more resources into pure exit traffic (exit nodes are also middle and guard nodes most of the time, even if their primary traffic goes to their exit functionality). Furthermore, it means an attacker who is trying to mount a traffic correlation attack by putting up rouge guards and exits will need to invest even more resources, because even if getting someone to use a rogue exit is easy due to the relative lack of exits, Mozilla will provide high-bandwidth competition that reduce the chance that a client will chose the attacker's guard.
More exits means faster and safer Tor, but more guards is always a good thing too!
Mozilla's a political
Mozilla's a political organization that also makes a browser. While I commend some of their activities commitment to privacy etc), they are also a left-wing organization.
And I'm saddened by this decision by Tor Project. Saddened because Mozilla Firefox is a 3rd-rate browser that's not as secure as alternatives. It lacks numerous security protections and it lacks a good sandbox. It's also vastly easier to exploit (as can be witnessed by looking at CVE reports from the past year).
Tor Project needs a better, more secure, web browser. Mozilla Firefox is simply not it.
Mozilla is working on the
Mozilla is working on the sandboxing/isolating content processes and should have something ready soon (you can test it already on the nightly channel). Additionally, we plan to start producing specially hardened Tor Browser builds soon, too. Thus, stay tuned. All the other browsers we have are worse if it comes to our needs and there is lack of resources to get that fixed.
gk, If we go by history and
If we go by history and look at growing pains that Chrome, Safari, IE went through, it will take Firefox team at least 3-4 years before their sandbox is as good as alternatives. There's just no way that their bolt-on sandbox will be any good right away. Maybe by 2017 they'll have something comparable to alternatives.

I agree with the second
I agree with the second poster. At this point I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Cloudflare is being run by the NSA for the express purpose of turning people away from Tor and identifying Tor users. The amount of people using Tor will certainly not expand when every new TBB user loads up the browser for the first time and finds out that almost every site they use demands that they fill out a CAPTCHA (some of them in foreign languages and some of them not loading at all due to the connection to the CAPTCHA image being redirected to Google's own "too many connections" CAPTCHA page/domain which will not load inline like reCAPTCHA -- a CAPTCHA to load a CAPTCHA and it doesn't even work!) while suggesting that their computer might be infected with malware. Furthermore, whenever you do enter in one of these CAPTCHAs to view a website, you get a Cloudflare "verification" ID cookie. If your Tor circuit changes, so does your IP, and you have to fill in a new CAPTCHA to browse the site again. But you still have the verification cookie from the old circuit unless you've deleted it, so they can correlate the two circuits together. This is dangerous for inexperienced users who won't practice manual cookie/circuit management.
Am I the only one who finds Cloudflare ridiculous and scary? A few fluff pieces in the news about how it makes your website OMG FASTER and all of a sudden having Cloudflare on your site is common wisdom, like you'd be an idiot not to, and we have a centralized entity controlling who is allowed to access a large portion of the web, with no discernible competition even. It's a psyops wet dream. It spread like a virus.
If Mozilla/Tor Project want to do something really useful, they can negotiate with Cloudflare about what would need to be done to end this insanity, if it isn't simply a government asset like I speculate. Either that or start up a campaign to inform website administrators that they are blocking a very necessary anonymity tool for vulnerable users when they use Cloudflare. Or maybe your average web admin could just stop being such a gullible sheep that does whatever Wired tells them to...
NSA bribed RSA in the past
NSA bribed RSA in the past to weaken security. Maybe they are up to their old tricks and bribed Cloudflare the same way, and/or have a couple plants inside the company making bad decisions for them.

Why CDT instead of EFF as a partner? CDT is more demonstrably beholden to major tech companies like Google via New America and other avenues (e.g. their laughably weak policy positions on various pieces of legislation), and EFF--at least historically--has a reputation for having a deeper bench of technical expertise. I totally understand the rationale for partnering with Mozilla, but CDT is much less clear.

I hope you can veto dangerous options and will stay fully free to build a more secure Tor browser. Better yet, I do hope this move doesn't mean you're going to stop providing easy access to standalone "Tor only" builds for popular platforms. I don't buy the "get anonymity by merging in the TBB-users crowd" motto.

"Too bad Mozilla is so intolerant of diverse opinions, ousting the creator of the browser for his political speech."
I'm glad to see others who object to the deplorable way in which Brendan Eich was treated by the very entitiy that he had helped found and build to what is today.
Just to be clear, the political expression of Eich's that cost him his job consisted of nothing more than a personal donation he had made to a cause that happens to run afoul of current McCarthyesque political and social orthodoxy-- orthodoxy that, at least in the particular area in question, Mozilla prides itself upon being an exemplar of. Eich's donation (and any other expressions he may have made or actions he may have taken in support of the cause in question) was wholly and unambiguously discrete and distinct from his position and role at Mozilla. Yet, despite this salient fact, Eich's colleagues at Mozilla, along with many of the sheeple from the indoctrinated masses all-too-eager to prove their purity and virtue in an area very much in vogue, joined together in a mass spectacle of self-righteous, moral preening. Whether or not anyone at Mozilla ever actually told Eich, who reportedly "resigned", to step-down and/or leave the organization seems to be of little consequence here. An environment that was unmistakably hostile toward Eich had been created at Mozilla.
