I have been using Orbot as a VPN for a while and I worked fine. I connected without a problem within a few minutes. I have a friend who has started using the dark web and told me how to do it. I downloaded Orfox and from then on Orbot has been unable to connect to tor. I tried uninstalling it in case it was still doing the VPN thing instead (i had already turned of VPN mode but I wanted to be sure) then I reinstalled it and the same thing happened.

If this is actually about the VPN mode, then having this be a Tor Browser ticket doesn't much so much sense: I hear that Tor Browser for Android doesn't do, or doesn't do well, the VPN mode from Orbot.

We won't fix anything for Orfox anymore. Thus, if this is an Orfox issue, then this is a WONTFIX. (However, it could be an Orbot issue, too. In that case please reopen this ticket providing steps to reproduce this bug with an application *not* being Orfox).
