Tor Browser 7.0.5 is released

Tor Browser 7.0.5 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.

This release makes HTTPS-Everywhere compatible with Tor Browser on higher security levels and ensures that browser windows on macOS are properly rounded.

The full changelog since Tor Browser 7.0.4 is:

  • All Platforms
    • Update Torbutton to 1.9.7.6
      • Bug 22989: Fix dimensions of new windows on macOS
      • Translations update
    • Update HTTPS-Everywhere to 2017.8.31
    • Update NoScript to 5.0.9
    • Bug 23166: Add new obfs4 bridge to the built-in ones
    • Bug 23258: Fix broken HTTPS-Everywhere on higher security levels
    • Bug 21270: NoScript settings break WebExtensions add-ons

No It is not funny.

They did not extend support for fine working Mac OS X versions.
And that is probably because they totally messed up the firefox browser from version 31 - 38.

And you know what is actually funny (but not)?
While ff versions where crashing 45, the torbrowser version was working fine.
But torproject stopped support because mozilla was ending support.

Difference is that mozilla had troubling code in their browser while the 'same' esr torbrowser had not.
End of the story: torproject is blindly following mozilla regardless of any, any, any knowledge or interest in real mac OS X marketshare.
And mozilla is just not interested in their own unique selling points (their old userbase and mac os x).

Do you have any Firewall/Anti Virus software that could interfere with Tor Browser? If so, which one? Does it help if you uninstall it (for testing purposes)? (Note: Disabling might not be enough)

The latest version of Tails does not connect to some public sites but the TOR browser after several minutes does connect to the same sites.

I was wondering why Tails doesnt give an option to choose the transport type?

Hi there. I am very grateful to your work for all us, but there is a problem about this last version 7.05, in respect of all previous other. Once updated, a bunch of malicious sites (stopped by my Malwarebytes protection) tried to enter my computer: a thing never happened before. Let you know that I check at least twice in a week my computer by some good antimalware software.
I do not know the why of such several attempts. They were always detected as "Outbound" malicious sites, and I underline how they tried to enter BEFORE I had tried to open any site. Very weird...
Can you tell me something about that, please..?
