Re: [tor-talk] TBB 2.2.32 & Automatic Updates

Thank you, this version works. 
Curiously, since it seems to yahoo that I am somewhere in Europe, they think that I want to see advertizements in German, even though I specifically selected the US Yahoo page.
Maybe their captchas were in German too, and that is why it was so hard to log in to my mail account.  Ain't technology grand?

Hi David,

Can you try this bundle? I made it for Windows to fix this problem -- the
automatic port selection in the new bundles is causing a lot of trouble, and
you can use this until we put out the new TBBs with the fix:


It just changes two configuration files (torrc and vidalia.conf) to disable the
automatic port selection. The official bundles will be coming out tomorrow.
