Ticket Summary Owner Component Milestone
#5489 Write up a "how to report bugs and security issues, and what happens then" post or FAQ nickm Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

We should summarize our current security process on a blog post, FAQ entry, or on the contact page. This hasn't gotten enough attention, since everybody's so busy, but

We should at the minimum let people know:

  • What issues to do this way and what should just go on the bugtracker. And why.
  • How to report bugs in general.
  • What to expect if you report a security issue.
  • Our current issue evaluation and response process, the history thereof.

This should be someplace pretty easy to find. A longer blog post and a shorter faq or contact entry seems smart to me.

#14686 Consolidate or de-emphasize our many download pages traumschule Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

During the UX Sprint, several of the users found alternate download pages other than download-easy, and became confused. If you search for Tor, download Tor, or Tor Browser, you get one of the following links:

Each of these has a different flow for downloading Tor Browser, and all but download-easy caused users to stop and become confused. I personally think should simply redirect to download-easy, and the page should remove the matrix and either behave like download-easy, or its download button should take the user to download-easy.

We will still need some place to put installation instructions, and the alpha downloads, but those should be broken off into different pages that replace the outdated mess in

#16546 Should we move anonbib to the Tor website? cypherpunks Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

Right now, anonbib exists under freehaven auspices, and is not maintained by Tor.

"Not maintained" being the operative word.

Should we move it to a torproject url and try to pretty it up a bit?

#16548 Change the HS nomenclature from hidden to onion cypherpunks Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

As discussed during the anonymous services meeting, we should change (or discuss changing) the nomenclature on the website to reflect Syverson's Genuine Onion'' paper.

Please do not make the mistake of grepping for Hidden and replacing it with Onion.

#17393 Make the various javascript on Tor sites be LibreJS-compatible? traumschule Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

On reading (as pointed out on tor-talk), I came across "B0": "All code sent to the user's browser must be free software and labeled for LibreJS or other suitable free automatic license analyzer".

I don't know anything about the politics behind libre JS or the like, but I know some of the Tor sites use JavaScript, and I also know we're not meaning to keep any of it non-free.

Is there some enthusiastic free software zealot out there who wants to inventory the javascript used on various Tor sites, and move us closer to labeling it all as free?

#17413 Usability of MacOS installation process traumschule Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

Usability of MacOS installation process

Consequence: User is unable to verify package signature

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download Tor browser
  1. Go to for instructions.
  1. Read the block of text for MacOS and Linux.
  1. Follow the link at the bottom of that section to:

  1. Struggle with the information on that page.
  1. Try to go to the SourceForge link there for GPG Mac download.

uBlock Origin blockade: uBlock Origin has prevented the following page from loading:

Because of the following filter$other

Found in: uBlock filters – Badware risks

  1. Give up.

What should have happened:

Follow the GPGTools link at the top of the Tor page's Mac/Linux instruction block.

Suggested fixes:

  • Divide the MacOS instructions from the Linux instructions.
  • Add numbers to the procedures... something like this, for the MacOS:
  1. Download Tor Browser and save the signature.asc to your Desktop.
  2. Download and install GPGTools.
  3. Open a Terminal window (Terminal is in /Applications/Utilities or find it with search)
  4. Paste the following into the terminal: [... ...]

...adding links appropriately in the procedure

  • Use link colors to help people visually scan through the pages. Take advantage of the human tendency to skim over text and just read the bold, colored stuff:

-Use a color with better contrast against black (the green is wonderful but too dark for good contrast) -Include more keywords in links

  • Related installation issue that probably belongs somewhere else:

Opening the DMG and installing the Tor Browser: The application file shows a file modification date of Dec 31, 1999, so it's difficult to know whether the downloaded one is newer than one I have already. No version number is in the file name. Get Info (cmd-I) (which not every Mac user knows about) does show a version number, and it also shows the file has a creation date of Dec 31, 2000, which is before the mod date. The weird dates might cause version control issues but are also likely to worry people who see them.

#17669 Old links to outdated versions of Tor Browser should redirect to a page with the latest version of Tor Browser hiro Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

When I follow a link online to an old version of Tor Browser Bundle, e.g.

I receive a 404 message. Instead of displaying a default 404 page, a Tor Browser specific 404 response should helpfully redirect users to the latest version of Tor Browser, either by providing a helpful message such as "Click here to download Tor Browser" or via a 301 redirect.

#17805 The website should support "stable" and "oldstable" tor releases cypherpunks Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

Right now we have "alpha" and "stable". But sometimes we want to have an extra stable listed as well.

No hurry on this one.

#21178 submenus and page structures behave inconsistently hiro Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

I've found some behavioral inconsistencies in, which I think can confuse our visitors. It would be great if we could fix some of these things.

  1. If you go to the "About Tor" page or the "Contact" pages, both are highlighted in the horizontal menu. (to view:
  1. About Tor > Projects leads to "Software and Services" ( I think that this should be consistently named.
  1. About Tor > Projects does does not redirect to a different page and has submenu items visible from the About Tor page. About Tor > Documentation and About Tor > Projects both do. My suggestion is to making Tor People redirect to a separate page with a separate vertical side menu, but also having the About Tor> Projects and About Tor > Documentation menus nested in the vertical menu on About Tor is also acceptable, as long as these side menus behave consistently.
  1. Some pages are blank:, This is bad because it makes them look broken. I don't have a better idea of what to put here without restructuring the whole website contents, but I think at the very least it should not be blank.
  1. You can browse to some pages that have different styling (go, click "Install Tor Browser" to get to, which really throws me off. It looks like it's a different site, or I've been redirected/scammed. I think there are other instances of this, but I can't recall every instance of where this happened.
  1. This may not be too big of an issue, but the main menu (Tor Home About Tor Documentation Press Blog Contact) keeps the current tab highlighted if the user is in that tab (Press is highlighted on, but this doesn't happen for the submenu (Download Volunteer Donate)--the volunteer page does not have volunteer highlighted.
#22076 adjust text shown on screen based on size of text traumschule Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

When viewing this web page I find I have to increase the size of text because I have poor vision.

If I use the control-+ to increase the text size, your web page forces me to scroll the window left to right to read lines of text.

Use the method that uses for displaying the screen. adjusts the text to fit within the displayed window by making lines shorter as text size increases and making lines longer as text size increases.

Go to and view any entry. Then do a control-+ to increase text size and see what it does. Then do a control-- to reduce size of text and see what it does. NOTE: I am using Ubuntu 16.04 - hence my control-+ increases text size and control-- will decrease text size. I don't know what keys are used to do this with other operating systems.

Just an idea from a 71 year old with bad eyes.

#22842 Create a knowledge base that's more in-depth than FAQs hiro Webpages/Website WebsiteV3

It would be useful for visitors to our web pages to have access to content that:

  • goes into more depth than a FAQ entry
  • is more formal than a blog post
  • is less comprehensive than a reference manual section
  • is more stable than a wiki page

These pages would form sort of a knowledge base or resource section.

#18911 bitcoin donations via BitPay don't work properly for tor users (BitPay uses Cloudflare) Sebastian Webpages/Website

steps to reproduce:

opened clicked on Donate clicked on "Other Ways to Donate" entered amount to donate clicked on the "bitcoin donate now" button solve 3 captchas finally ended up on

That page says: " Oops... that page doesn't exist! If it seems like there should be something here, please let us know. "

BitPay will not disable CAPTCHA for tor users trying to donate to the torproject:

To answer your question: "would you be willing to disable CAPTCHAs for Tor users to make donations work out of the box? "

This was my first request to BitPay management. The answer was no. I then asked if we could offer a payment button that worked through Cloudflare and the answer was "not at this time".

I am very sorry to bring you this news. This issue is also very important to me personally. I think people should be able to donate bitcoin to the Tor Project from the Tor Browser without jumping through hoops, but this is the state of things at the moment.

#18925 Add instructions for removing the code signing parts of OS X bundles and MAR files tbb-team Webpages/Website

We start with code signing on OS X now and should have instructions on our website for getting rid of the code signing parts to make it easier for comparing the things we ship with the things we built.
