Tor Browser 7.5.5 is released

Tor Browser 7.5.5 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.

This release features important security updates to Firefox.

This release updates Firefox to 52.8.1esr. In addition, we had to remove the amazon-meek pluggable transport.

The full changelog since Tor Browser 7.5.4 is:

  • All platforms
    • Update Firefox to 52.8.1esr
    • Bug 26098: Remove amazon-meek

You mean this blog? We're privacy advocates and human rights advocates, not (for the most part) hackers.

But take a look at the PKI certificate for blog.torproject.org. Weird, ain't it? Not a certificate controlled by Tor Project, and it is shared with numerous other domains including a company called forensicon.com. Makes you think, huh? Especially since TP is refusing to answer questions about it.

The PKI cert for www.torproject.org looks fine, BTW.

palemoon has this function:

Tools>Preference>Content
Load images: Automatically,Never,Originating server only

Hop TOR has the function too. Thanks

If you find that "Tor is too slow", the most effective ways of fixing that in Tor Browser are to use about:config to change that setting to value "2", and also to change javascript:enabled to FALSE. EFF's panopticlick appears to suggest that most Tor Browser users are making these changes.

arma never did explain why Rachel isn't working for TB instead of DARPA, regarding increasing entropy of posts like this one to make stylometry more difficult. That's too bad for us..

Changing those settings is a bad advice as it makes you stand out as a Tor Browser user. And, no, EFF's panopticlick is not a good test for that as its results are skewed due to non-Tor Browsers counting here as well. We are working on a better test for that which you can try out at https://fpcentral.tbb.torproject.org/ it's a beta version still, though.

OK, well gk knows much more than I, so everyone should probably follow his advice, not mine.

I'd just ask that TP make sure someone (gk or nm mebbe) is looking into how the demise of net neutrality might affect ordinary Tor users. I think best judgment on issues involving how Tor interacts with the wider internet (e.g. CDNs, anti-DDOS screeners, new EU laws, new US laws, continued internecine warfare among media sites and with the US White House, etc.) is likely to change in coming months.

Higher and higer GFW, less and less Plugintransports. We need more kinds of Bridge. FTE has not been updated for 3 years. What's next we will lose? Oh,god.

On a Mac OS I see 4 bridges, obfs4, obfs3, meek amazon(works in China) and meek-azure(works in china) how does the removal of the Amazon transport bug26098 affect these bridges? Is meek amazon(works in China) related?

Tor seems to remember all of the URL history from previous sessions, when I try to manually enter a new URL. That surprises me since Tor does NOT remember browser history. Is there a way to configure this behavior?

I did NOT say the Tor Browser history was preserved. The history page (ctrl+h) is always empty. What is being preserved is the *URL type-ahead* history. If I go to enter the website in the URL entry area at the top, Tor is matching the leading substring of anything I type. Are you saying those matches are confined to just the entries that I have permanently bookmarked? So that is a bookmark matching feature?

There's something wrong with FF 52.8.1.
I'm using non e10 add-ons and after updating https everywhere
Multiprocess Windows 0/1 (Disabled by add-ons) changes to 1/1 (Enabled by default).
New Identity makes the TBB window moving step by step across the screen.
Platform Windows, maybe somebody can confirm.

Mac 7.5.5
Constant problems Uploading, even loading a page, takes hours to perform a task.
Hanging, stall out, lack of performance, uploading failure & unbearable tasks take longer & fail.
I have to roll back a version to get it to work, but it still takes hours as it also attempting to upload to 7.5.5 at the same time. I've never seen anything extremely wrong with Tor till this version.
When will this be verified?
