Hi, I've been experiencing extremely slow connection speeds today. Even when I use a new identity or circuit. This doesn't happen on other browsers, only Tor. I'm a targeted individual and I've been posting some content recently so I'm guessing it has something to do with that. Or maybe I'm not the only one experiencing it. I rely on Tor for privacy so I hope this will be looked into.

Resolution: not a bug
Status: newclosed
Version: Tor:

You might have got a slow guard which would not change if you do a new identity or change the circuit. Or your regular guard node could have issues with the network right now. Or your government/ISP could throttle traffic that it does not know about and it would affected your Tor connections. Or maybe there is even another explanation.

Either way, I don't think that's a Tor bug. However, you could try bridges and see whether that solves your problem.
