I installed Torbutton v1.2.2 on Firefox v3.5.1 with recommeded proxy adjustments and privoxy use.
but :

  • Tor proxy test failed with "Internal error" and [Java Script - Anwendung] popup
  • when enabling the Torbutton I can't load any web page anymore even after restarting Firefox. I always get the failure message

"Fehler: Proxy-Server verweigert die Verbindung
Firefox wurde konfiguriert, einen Proxy-Server zu nutzen, der die Verbindung zurückweist."

  • when enabling the Torbutton I don't see a privoxy task running in the Windows task list

My PC is using Windows XP with Avira Antivir software and a WLAN router firewall.

I am having a similar issue with Torbutton and Vidalia installed.

I have installed the latest Vidalia bundle for the Mac, am using Mac OS 10.6.1 and Firefox 3.0.14.

I start vidalia and it connects to the TOR network,
I then start firefox and can browse with the TOR button off,
when I switch the Torbutton to active I cannot browse and cannot click links on open pages.
I am using the following settings for Torbutton - Proxy Settings - Use Privoxy,

when I test settings, I get the following error: Tor proxy test: Internal error

I have used Vidalia / Tor / Torbutton with success using Mac OX 10.5.8

Any suggestions?

was privoxy running and configured correctly?
could be duplicate of or related to bug 1085

How do you ensure that privoxy is running and configured correctly?

Should I uninstall the vidalia package and do a fresh reinstall?
