Re: Tor not working


Yes, I have those settings (I'm using the Tor button extension for Firefox) and it worked fine yesterday, but today it will not connect to any site. I do have the latest stable version with Vidalia installed, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Any other suggestions?

in Firefox, tools | options | connections parameters
