Description

No longer allowing connections to 127.0.0.1 at all (#10419) is a huge disadvantage.

  • Users using the i2p web interface can no longer use it using Tor Browser.
  • Users wanting to visit their own hidden service using 127.0.0.1 won't be able to do so anymore.

And what will they do? Using a regular browser. And being worse off.

Can you allow connections to 127.0.0.1 will still defeating fingerprinting issues (#10419) please?

Well, you can set the exception in Tor Browser yourself if you need it, see #10419 comment 37ff.

This involves fixing https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=354493 which is not so easy...
