Do I need some new setting?

Thanks for any help.


Hello Sean,

I use flash player over TOR, I don't install Torbutton, its a little slow, but I do download larger files at peak, if available.

I use Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080201 Firefox/ browser.

With Firefox, QuickJava, NoScript and FlashBlock addons to control the various java's manually and with flashblock you get a to choose what to see on flash.

My Firefox network setting are (tools/options/advanced/network/settings),

manual proxy config...
http proxy: localhost at 8118
ssl proxy: localhost at 8118
socks host: localhost at 9050


No proxy for: localhost,

My privoxy works on port 8118

Tor access port: 9050

At the same time my (soft & hard) firewalls block all direct internet access for both my Firefox browser and any apps runninh in firefox. So Firefox and flash has no exit other than via TOR. I can see the flash traffic in Vidalia's bandwidth graph.

For direct internet access I use another browser entirely.

Hope that helps.
