I installed on Mac OSX 10.6.5 and set-up Country-specific Exit Nodes in torrc. Vidalia is starting up and opening Firefox (Namoroka v3.6.13) - sometimes needing a second attempt, which I believe has already been identified - but no matter what I do, it is not recognizing the country-specific exit nodes. Even adding Exclude Nodes to torrc for all but the right country does not force the right exit nodes - each time I restart, the exit node is another with a random country.

I wonder if Vidalia.conf is overriding torrc somehow? I tried to find a syntax to force Vidalia.conf to accept torrc exit nodes, without success.

Someone with Mac 10.5 on your discussion forum took a look at my torrc file and found it correct, so that doesn't seem to be at fault, but I attach it anyway. [<rransom> That means that the torrc you pasted *is* being ignored.]. I don't think the torrc file itself is being ignored because Tor does not run if I remove it, but the exit nodes instruction is.

Namoroka is also crashing when opening even small videos (e.g. on YouTube), even though all necessary plugins are present and I have unchecked "Disable plugins during Tor usage (crucial)" in Torbutton preferences. Please note that anonymity is not an issue in this regard.

I have mentioned the crashing here because I don't know if these two issues are related, but please advise if I need to open another ticket for this second issue, or whether it can be dealt with from this one. Thanks in advance in anticipation of a solution!
