    10 '''Why does Firefox/Privoxy/Tor return Privoxy 404 pages so frequently -- almost every time -- when properly configured, even on sites like google.com?  How to mitigate?''' (Votes: 2)

    12 Maybe it's just my Mac but I find that Tor has a habit of dying and staying dead which leaves privoxy and firefox non-functional. The work around I've found is that you can open Terminal directly and just start Tor by typing "Tor". I also find that if I start getting a lot of 403's or 504's then I can just kill the Tor instance running in Terminal and re-start it. More often than not, that fixes the problem.

     13'''For that matter, why is DNS the main failure mode?  Who is timing out and why?  Can't tor (1) change the timeout, (2) deprecate bad servers, or (3) cache DNS locally so it doesn't have to make a long, slow, failure-prone DNS lookup many times for the same URL?'''

    1415'''Is the reason that gmail rarely works: gmail, tor, privoxy, firefox, your own bandwidth/latency, tor's bw/latency, or some combination?  Is it fixable?'''
