Tor support authenticated hidden services. Unfortunately, the easiest way to currently reach them is by modifying torrc.

It would be great if the TorBrowser would offer an easier interface to reach HTTP(S) authenticated hidden services.

A quick brainstorm lead to think that their could be two sides of this interface:

  • an option in the onion menu,
  • custom "Unable to connect" page for .onion that would say "maybe this hidden service requires an auth cookie" and a field to enter one.

This almost seems like a Tor Launcher bug.. I'll accept patches, but realistically not much is going to happen otherwise?

I second this. It's currently very difficult to use an authenticated hidden service as a client.
