This occurs with Firefox 3.6 and 6.0, using the latest version of TorButton for each. Trying to comment on any blog in blogspot results in this error. I made a dummy account so anyone can replicate the error:

Go to
Sign in as kokopopo667 with the password aksjhash7dkah
Go to
Scroll down to first post and click on its comments link
Scroll down and in "Leave your comment" write any random text (can't leave it blank)
Then in "Choose identity" select OpenID and in the submenu that will appear select LiveJournal
In the box beneath write kokopopo667
Press Enter or click "Publish Your Comment"
At this point the error should appear

The error appears with other journals, too, not just livejournal.

Is this regular Firefox? Or Tor Browser Bundle?

I ask because there are pref changes and patches in TBB that could make a difference.

It's regular Firefox.

I just tested this and it works in TBB...

I get "Your comment has been saved and will be visible after blog owner approval."

Preview also works.

Was it a transient failure? Or is this specific to Firefox and not TBB? I am not aware of any of our patches that should break this functionality.

Perhaps it is specific to your Firefox because of an addon conflict?

This doesn't seem to happen in TBB and the user is gone anyways.
