I have successfully torified a program in terminal under Ubuntu, following https://linuxaria.com/howto/how-to-anonymize-the-programs-from-your-terminal-with-torify:
In this example we’ll keep all the standard configuration but 2 things, in the file /etc/tor/torrc you should uncomment the directive:
With these 2 options we set the port on which Tor will listen for local connections from Tor controller applications, and we tell to Tor that we don’t need an authentication, so any program can control Tor (don’t do this on a shared computer or server)
Now I want to test if torify works for a web browser.
torify firefox invokes firefox which shows my real external ip through ip lookup websites.
torify google-chrome doesn't invoke chrome browser at all.
Why do they not work? How can I make them work? Thanks.
