Hi Jason,

I am taking this from tor-ops to or-talk since it's the more
appropriate mailing list for usage problems. Please make sure to add
the or-talk mailing list on Cc: in your replies. Thanks!

My guess from what your symptoms are is that your Java/JavaScript
setting are somewhat screwed up due to Tor. Maybe you can elaborate a
bit more about what error messages you get etc. so we can make a
better guess what the problem might be.

In Firefox 2, the settings for Java/JavaScript can be changed as follows:

This might have changed in Firefox 3, maybe someone else can step up
and tell us how to change those in FF3?


p.s.: Jason's original mail is here:

"I may had followed your uninstalling process, but the real problem
is, your TOR had caused my connection to go haywire and certain
websites are causing their Javas to unable to read properly AND
webpages cannot be loaded completely. Even after uninstalling, the
connection still goes haywire and I'm unable to fix it as though like
reformatting may be the last answer to go for. Here are the following
websites which TOR causes it to haywire :

1. Deviantart
2. Hotmail
3. Nickelodeon (Official US site)"
