Are you sure that tor is running? In Terminal.app, type "ps ax|grep
tor" and confirm that "//Library/Tor/tor -f //Library/Tor/torrc" is

Check your system.log via Console.app to see if you see a message
showing tor starting up.

Try running "sudo /Library/StartupItems/Tor/Tor restart" in
Terminal.app and watching the log for any error.
