hi, i setup everything, (using Mac Os X) in system preferences. in FIrefox, i set up the plug in that switches proxies. when i switch to TOR, it says that the proxy server is refusing connections. (standard firefox error page). does that just mean that servers are down, or something else?

That sounds to me like Privoxy isn't running. In Terminal, try running "ps ax|grep privoxy" and see if it shows privoxy as running. You can do "sudo /Library/StartupItems/Privoxy/Privoxy start" to start it.
