Tor uses a small number of entry guards to protect your anonymity:

Protecting my anonymity by using a small number of entry guards?

All my connections go through the entry guard (always the same guard), this can be used to spy on every Tor user by a "Man in the middle attack".

How can i setup Tor to change the entry guards all the time?

Tor's entry guard design minimises your chance of choosing a malicious entry node.
Choosing entry nodes at random guarantees you will eventually choose a bad one,

This is a bug tracker, not a question and answer platform.
If you have more questions, please use IRC or the tor-talk mailing list for help.
