Tor Browser 5.5.4 is released

Tor Browser 5.5.4 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.

This release updates firefox to 38.7.1. Mozilla decided to disable the Graphite library in this release and we are taking the same action: irrespective of the security slider settings the Graphite library won't be used for rendering fonts in Tor Browser 5.5.4. The Graphite font rendering library was already disabled for users on the security level "High" or "Medium-High".

The full changelog since 5.5.3 is:

Tor Browser 5.5.4 -- March 18 2016

  • All Platforms
    • Update Firefox to 38.7.1esr
    • Update Torbutton to 1.9.4.5
      • Bug 18557: Exempt Graphite from the Security Slider (Firefox disables Graphite by default)
    • Bug 18536: Make Mosaddegh and MaBishomarim available on port 80 and 443

درود بر مصدق کبیر، او راه آزادی و استقلال را به مردم ايران نشان داد. او در تاریخ ایران مانند ستاره ای میدرخشد.

درود بر مصدق کبیر، او راه آزادی و استقلال را به مردم ايران نشان داد. او در تاریخ ایران مانند ستاره ای میدرخشد

بت سازی نکنید دوست گرامی. مصدق هم مثل هر سیاستمدار دیگر یک انسان بود و پر از تصمیمات درست و نادرست.پیشنهاد میکنم پیش از شعتر دادن، کتاب خاطرات دکتر مصدق و و نوشته های مهدی شمشیری و علی میرفطروس رو هم بخوانید. با سپاس

شازده مصدق السلطنه را می گویی
همانی که مجلس را منحل کرد
همانی که حکومت نظامی اعلام کرد
همانی که قاتلین شادروان کسروی را از زندان آزاد کرد
همانی که از دستور قانونی شخص اول مملکت (با توجه به قانون اساسی آن زمان)برای واگذاری پست نخست وزیری خودداری کرد
رهبر جبهه ملی های که این بلا را سر ما آوردند
یه کمی بجای شعار دادن فکر کنید
عقل برای تفکر اسنت

Mossadegh was the Persian president (Iran) assassinated to make way for the Shah, supposedly by the British Secret Service and the CIA. The reasons were, supposedly, that he was an independent freedom loving democrat but the West wanted an autocrat it could control. Not much of this is true. But someone had to make a political statement, didn't he?

Mr.Mossadegh was a nationalist prime minster and believed the benefits of Iranian oil resources should be allocated to Iranian in order to make a prosperous life to his nation and along with this believed democratic procedures to govern the community and owing to these believe he opposed to the interferences of foreigners especially great Britain in our oil industry and triumphed to nationalize the oil industries eventually ,but unfortunately the US& the UK. overthrew his legal government and returned the ex Shah which escaped in consequent of people revolution to the throne it should be added that Dr.Mossadegh is a loving character for most of Iranian ,

Mossadegh was not assassinated. He lived to the ripe old age of 84, happily ensconced on his ancestral estate.

sad to say, but ur theory is all bullshit. the CIA and maybe the British did oust the ruling parting, but the cia certainly did. they did want a puppet they could control. was great for big oil in the US.

There's little doubt about the WEST assassinating Mossadegh to install the SHAH, who was virtually a servant to the CIA and the BSS. I would imagine the KGB was close at hand, considering their prey was a freedom loving democrat.
Should the previous writer have more detailed information, for it to be divulged, might help to burst the bubble which is causing so much havoc in the Middle East.

Hi, happy Iranian New Year to all TOR officials who do their best to let us leap thru the barriers created by our molla and semi-molla-driven regime here in Iran and go to blocked sites, which wouldn't havve happened if it weren't for your big help. By the way Mosdegh was an Iranian Prime minister overthrown by British and American agents of intelligence of my birth and has to be forgotten to build a better world but it gives our present so-called rulers to drive us to MIDDLE AGES.
I appreciate your favors on part of me, my family , and many many friends known or unknown in Iran with lots of difficulty and reduced speed of the net to communicate with other humans thinking differently from mollas and semi-mollas who have be-theft our so-called revolution of 1979 and 80s for a better western or libro-democratic way of governing. We are at the bottom of a bg ditch dug by ourselves.

Hey! :) Has ANYBODY from America ever just said that WE...as a PEOPLE>>>KNOW that YOU GUYS...the real people, the ones that see and live all of this...are held as hostages to your situation. WE...as a PEOPLE...although glad that we don't suffer your circumstance...realize that on any given day, should you fall into peril in front of us, the real American...You would be swarmed with love and help and understanding so fast it would make a King's EYES twirl in its head. WE...ALL OF US...ARE THE PEOPLE! :)

I KNOW that the very same would happen should I ever need your help. This is the comfort that will allow us to carry on, but never fail to let others run what you inherently know to be right...weigh all with the measures of the multitude, do the math, and then spring from your heart to cause the change. Don't try it alone. There is more than one way to skin a CAT! Take heart, and good luck over there. The universe is watching US! :) TOMMY TUNES...FLORIDA USA

For the first time yesterday, as I was reading Twitter while using Tor & Ghostery, an advertisement appeared on Twitter that should have been blocked. Hopefully this Tor update will stop this happening again.

1. most sites use javascript in some manner, to put ads on a web page.
2. unless the javascript domain is whitelisted, those ads are usually blocked by noscript extension.
3. So, I think you should check if you have twitter in noscript > options > whitelist (tab)
4. if you allow javascript on twitter, then check that untrusted menu while on a twitter pag. And if you rely on ghostery, check the ghostery settings?

Noscript Untrusted domains menu:
(A search found screen capture on http://www.addictivetips.com/internet-tips/noscript-provides-enhanced-s…)
I use the noscript button to access untrusted list. This screen capture shows the list by using firefox orange thing menu?
http://cloud.addictivetips.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/context-menu-…
you can see that many domains have not yet been marked untrusted.
I trend toward restricting javascript. So i don't know if I would need to allow javascript on addictivetips.com, but if I did allow addictivetips.com, I would untrust all others in that screen capture list.

Using Tor Browser with Ghostery is likely to make you fingerprintable; depending on your settings in Ghostery you might present a unique fingerprint. Depending on your threat model, this can be a bad thing.

Sorry - I appreciate TOR - But last month all Web pages display squares instead of symbols
This does not happen on other browsers -
I tried everything - update programs, cleaning the computer - Nothing
I do not know what to do
Any solution?
birdland.birdland@laposte.net

I'm guessing this is referring to symbols getting replaced with the unicode number in a square if you have font downloads disabled with a high security level.

that should have been:
scroll down to less common characters, such as ¶ and to þ and to ×
