Updated the screenshots and added a short troubleshooting section. The code still lists two TODOs:

  • rewrite "running a bridge" section
  • add obfs4 how-tos

What do others think?

I think this page should be merged with https://tb-manual.torproject.org/bridges/ and redirected there.

Let me do this and replace the webwml page with a link.

Notes

  • some screenshots show Tor Launcher instead of Tor Browser's network settings (see TODO in the source)
  • the specblob link is now static. If we will have dynamic links like with webwml/include/links.wmi it needs to be updated.
  • anchors need to be updated when #28501 is implemented
  • update email providers in case of #28496
  • update support and FAQ links when the FAQ sections are moved to the according support.tpo and tb-manual.tpo pages
  • merge PT page to /transports
