Description

System: Windows 7 64 bit
TBB: tor-browser-2.3.25-8_en-US
Behavior: FF complains that the proxy server refuses connections "The proxy server is refusing connections"

How to reproduce:

Open Vidalia's settings> Advanced tab> Uncheck Randomly Generate> type a password (lets say 123) > Hit "OK"> Restart TBB

You will get an error message from FF as the following "The proxy server is refusing connections"

Now, check the torrc file and you will see that the SocksPort is set to 9050 when it should be 9150.

Even if you go back to vidalia's settings a check "Randomly Generate" the password the SocksPort is still to 9050.

Issue is present in tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.3.25-8-dev-en-US.tar.gz.

This seems to happen with *any* change to the control port's authentication method.

Ok. I'm going to call this bug solved now that Tor Browser 4 works reasonably smoothly for this situation. Vidalia is dead; long live Tor Launcher.
