In the country I am in now, some connection works well with the old version Tor like 4.5 , but not the new version 5.0 or later. I've tried all kinds of connections like meek, obfs etc. all failed. I suspected it's caused by firewall. But after disabling firewall, it still failed. (This country is "famous" for its censorship. )
Please fix it. Thanks!

Please disable automatic update from earlier version. Some people here are on mobile internet and pay for every kilobyte transmitted.

I'm not sure which version I have but I updated a few weeks ago or a month ago, I think it was working recently but now it says can't load xpom. What's wrong?

Also how can I use tor to access where the majority of content on the page is animated, and why do some pages in tor make you go through some annoying repeating captcha?

The annoying captcha is Cloudflare who host a large proportion of web servers and will force a captcha if you're coming from a known Tor exit node.

In the same way Google harass Tor users with captchas, in some cases indefinitely repeating the request with a new captcha even with correct answers entered.
