No, the problem is that your ports aren't reachable.
Okay, the problem is my ports. And because my logs had lacked the error messages described by Fabian, I guess I have socks4 where I ought to have socks4a, although
I had thought that I had socks4a because my Privoxy config file has the line:
forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .
But of course the little dot prevents the forwarding from being used. So I tried taking out the "." and LittleSnitch reported that Privoxy was now trying to access the net when I tried to find the hidden service.
I now see that there is an error:
Jul 22 23:53:09:137 [Notice] Rend stream is 120 seconds late. Giving up on addre
Now, the fact that I have that would lead me to think I have socks4a, but "
example.noconnect" leads to an identical error page, so maybe I don't have socks4a, or maybe some other thing is going wrong with the 9050 mentioned in the file and the 8118 mentioned on the error page.

You should rethink this. :)
Let me rephrase that. The problem exists whether my firewall is on or off, and it exists whether I activate or deactivate my "Little Snitch" program.

That address opens immediately with the message:
The hidden wiki is gone. If you set up a new one and post the link to the or-talk list I'll link it from here. 06/07/07.
Some Hans Zaagman suggested in a post to or-talk to use
http://hy2644uxnz6zwt6c.onion/hidden/ as a replacement. 07/07/07.
The problem comes when I try to openhttp://hy2644uxnz6zwt6c.onion/hidden/
which always takes at least 30 seconds, usually much longer, and results in a 404 error.
If not, does it fail immediately (meaning you might not have configured
your Firefox correctly -- you are using Firefox and Torbutton, right?) or
does it take a few minutes to fail (meaning everything's configured
correctly on your side, but your network is still too slow or flaky for
it to work)?
It takes about a minute or two to fail, never more than five minutes. Thus I think my network is too slow, thus I wondered if more bandwidth might be required.
