Hi, I installed "Tor Browser Bundle (2.3.25-9)" for linux/64bit, and use start-tor-browser script to start tbb.
I noticed tbb try to write/create orbit-$USER to /tmp (/tmp/orbit-$USER),
and also try to write/create /var/tmp/etilqs_$ramdom_string, is it normal?

export TMP/TEMP can redirect tbb create /tmp/orbit-$USER to inside tbb directory
but tbb still try to create/write /var/tmp/etilqs_$ramdom_string !

ask this, because I suppose tbb never write/create anything to outside of tbb directory.

can I config tbb never write/create anything outside of tbb directory?

thanks.

I have downloaded and run Tor....but verifying in IP-Check it still shows my current IP address and location. What do I need to do?

The German bundle tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.3.25-9-dev-de.tar.gz does not work (at least on my computer) whereas the US-eng does.

When are we going to get a FreeBSD based browser bundle instead (or in addition to) the Linux one?

When I try and extract the Start Tor Browser app, every version I have tried for Linux opens a dialog box between two people talking about Firefox.
Either that or a Vidalia error 147.

I don't know where else to post this:

In the past, when I would run Tor and go to YouTube, I would not be able to run the YouTube videos. Now, when I run Tor, I am noticing that the Youtube videos ~ARE~ being displayed using Tor.

Question:
Are these YouTube videos actually running through the Tor browser chain, or is the playing of YouTube videos bypassing Tor and "going around" Tor and loading in my flashplayer, thereby allowing my IP to be known by YouTube?.
I do NOT want to run YouTube videos, and have YouTube being able to associate my IP with their videos.
Thanks
