When I logout of my yahoo mail account using Tor it jumps back to

compiling) on Vista.  When I toggle torbutton I can logout OK.
Any ideas?


Try adding these lines to your Privoxy default.action file - one of
them should fix your problem.

  ===== begin ======
{ -crunch-all-cookies -filter -fast-redirects -hide-referer
-kill-popups -prevent-compression }


{+fast-redirects{check-decoded-url} -block}
  ===== end ======

I don't remember ever having a problem logging out of Yahoo using a browser with javascript disabled. I did have a problem using Firefox with everything enabled... I think it was the .yahoo.com/.*done=http
that fixed the logout problem - but I'm not sure so I included all of
my privoxy rules for yahoo.
