: Sometimes when I perform an HTTP request via Tor, the response is "Connection: close" rather than the expected content. This happens intermittently, and with various sites. Does anyone know what causes this problem, and whether anything can be done about it? It's been annoying me for quite a while.

Most likely, it is a malfunctioning proxy server just beyond the tor
exit node.  We've seen this when people place squid proxies between
their tor exit node and the ISP.  The squid proxies malfunction for one
reason or another and return "Connection: Close".  Next time your
receive the error, note your exit node.  If it consistently causes this
problem, you may wish to email the exit node contact.
