[tor-talk] Tor transparent proxy -> strange behavior regarding .onion

Hey all,

I hope, I’m not off-topic with my question…

For the last two years, I’ve been running several Tor transparent proxies at different places (Raspberry Pi, Debian). This worked like a charm, but since last autumn, Firefox and Safari don't display .onion sites anymore. But here is the thing: On the exact same client with the exact same proxy, Google Chrome works without problems. This behavior concerns all my boxes with different clients in different network environments. I don’t know when, precisely, it started to happen, because I don’t use .onion sites very often. Nevertheless, I didn’t change anything in the box configuration. Regarding Firefox, I already set the network.dns.blockDotOnion = false.  All other sites are working without any problem and are routed through the Tor network as it should be. 

Torrc on the proxy looks like that: 
Log notice file /var/log/tor/notices.log
AutomapHostsSuffixes .onion,.exit
AutomapHostsOnResolve 1
DisableDebuggerAttachment 0
ControlPort 9051
HashedControlPassword <blabla>

Firefox message:
Server not found
Firefox can’t find the server at facebookcorewwwi.onion

I searched for more information about this problem on the web, on the different mailing lists and on reddit the last weeks, but didn’t find anything which helped me to solve or even explain this strange behavior.

Does anyone have an idea why .onion sites work on Google Chrome but not on the other browsers anymore? I’m grateful for any hints.
