OS X Client and Privoxy 503 error


I'm surprised to report that setting up my tor server on Debian last
month was a breeze, but getting a tor client to work under OS X still
escapes me.

Every time I go into Firefox preferences and switch to
any web site that I then attempt to visit yields the same 503 error:

This is Privoxy 3.0.3 on localhost (, port 8118, enabled
Connect failed

Your request for http://www.yahoo.com/ could not be fulfilled, because
the connection to www.yahoo.com ( could not be established.

It doesn't matter what web site address I type in, I get the same
result. I read the FAQ and I think I followed all the installation
instructions. No luck. Thanks for any suggestions.
