Web servers that are responsible for more than one
domain rely on the HTTP "Host" header to decide which
content you're interested in.

If you use Tor's exit node notation in the URL,
the browser will also append it to the Host header.

If the web server ignores the Host header anyway,
it doesn't matter, otherwise you get an error message
because the web server isn't aware of any host with
Tor exit node notation at the end. Some servers also
simply use a default host instead of an error message.

You'll either have to find a way to tell the browser
not to add the exit node notation to the Host header,
or remove the exit node notation later on.

The latter can be done automatically with Privoxy's
hide-tor-exit-notation filter, you can also do it
manually with Firefox extensions like "Tamper data".

I assume there are extensions that can do it automatically
as well, but I haven't looked for them.

Note that many HTTP proxies rebuild the host header
from the URL in which case removing the Tor exit node
notation in the browser is futile.
