1. Include port 80 in the list of long lived ports.
2. Set a limit on circuit build time, so that slow/backlogged nodes
don't get used.
That adds 80 (web browsing) to the long lived ports. (Actually, 443
should be added for https:// connections as well), and requires that
circuits be constructed in 10 seconds instead of 60.

I need advice on anonymous v. normal sessions.
Tor has saved me from packet sniffers and MITM attacks since I started using
it. These attacks always and only happened during my banking sessions. I
inferred that my net traffic must have been closely monitored by someone (I
have a private-detective neighbor whose son works for my ISP, but I can't
very well bring a case based on suspicion).
Having enjoyed the protection of Tor, I am now extremely reluctant to get
online without it. But sometimes the connections are closed or too slow
during my session that I get auto logged out by the server. I have to log in
repeatedly, but there are only so many sessions a day allowed, as a security
feature. Can someone tell me how best to safeguard my net traffic?
