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 Weird, ain't it? Not a certificate controlled by Tor Project, and it is shared with numerous other domains including a company called Makes you think, huh? Especially since TP is refusing to answer questions about it.

The PKI cert for looks fine, BTW.

palemoon has this function:

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..

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.

i am one of the admirers of tor browser.
please indicate how to deal with a very disturbing reCHAPTCHA.
I want my tor browser can automatically execute reCHAPTCHA.
Please inform us how to solve it

best regards,

Herry :)

> I want my tor browser can automatically execute reCHAPTCHA.

But isn't the whole idea of CAPTCHA to prevent bots from pretending to be humans?

For me - everithing is goog with this update. (win7 32bit)

wth with pagination without js on this blog?

Yeah, the blog does not work pretty well without JavaScript enabled, see:

Should be fixed now, sorry for the inconvenience.

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.Drupal\Component\Plugin\Exception\PluginNotFoundException: The "entity_form_display" entity type does not exist. in Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityTypeManager->getDefinition() (line 133 of core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/EntityTypeManager.php).


where is my comment about bug with youtube?

am getting this message when trying to change to new identity

Torbutton: Unexpected error on new identity: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520010 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NO_DEVICE_SPACE) [nsIPrefService.savePrefFile]" nsresult: "0x80520010 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NO_DEVICE_SPACE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://torbutton/content/torbutton.js :: torbutton_do_new_identity :: line 1215" data: no]

and then the whole page goes what and have to restart tor which seems to take forever to launch...

Torbutton: Unexpected error on new identity: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520010 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NO_DEVICE_SPACE) [nsIPrefService.savePrefFile]" nsresult: "0x80520010 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NO_DEVICE_SPACE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://torbutton/content/torbutton.js :: torbutton_do_new_identity :: line 1215" data: no]

y tor/duckduck now blocking sites that bing accesses with no problem

mucho bueno firefox

Experiencing constant slow uploading failures, increased time from 15 minutes to hours and eventual upload stuck.
Attempting to install 7.5.4 dmg wont open. The following disk images could't be opened. TorBrowser-7.5.4-osx6 Operation timed out.
Attempted to open 7.5.5 dmg won't open. The following disk images could't be opened. TorBrowser-7.5.5-osx6 Operation timed out.
Second attempt complete failure opening dmg for both versions. Must re download to get your one attempt. which fails with above message.


Mac dmg's 7.5.5 & 7.5.4 won't open. I let them update. Wanted to roll back.
7.5.5 running very slow, unusual, hanging compared to 7.5.4.

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.

Thanks so much for this.

In next esr, August, GUI is only visible with JavaScript on?
That would be ...ehm ...weird?

Mac dmg's now opening.
Mac 7.5.5 hanging, stall out, lack of performance, uploading failure & unbearable tasks take longer & fail.

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?

The meek-amazon option is not available anymore. All other options are unaffected.

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?

Could it be that you accidentally bookmarked those URLs? By default Tor Browser is not keeping the history across session restarts.

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?

Problem loading page. The connection has timed out. Uploads have gone from a couple minutes to over an hour or
never finishing.

how the fuck Noscript was updated if it wasn't in alpha?

i like tor, but not always use it

Very important comment.
I wish to thank you very, very much for this modification to my browser. It makes me feel really good.

I am living in a dump like India and very much fed up with Google and Microsoft. as they always give hand third party to surveil its client..Thank you TOR to let us roaming freely in this beautiful virtual world..

tor browser is kind of better than any other browser, such as user-friendly.

HTTPSE 2018.6.21
Ruleset update for EFF (Full): 2018.6.19

I don't see any difference at all.

cool browser

so do we have to delete tor or does it auto update

It autoupdates.
