I installed tor, then wanted to configure my firefox browser to work with tor. I had to do this as to use python/firefox anonymously to scrape data. I was successfully able to use tor through firefox. After wanting to go back to normal internet, I changed Configure Proxies to Access the Internet back to No Proxy, and now my internet wont work at all. I cant connect to the internet through my terminal or firefox. It will only work if I set SOCKS Host = and Port back to 9150. Any advice? Chrome doesnt work at all either ..

im on ubuntu 16.04

    Note that running browsers - other than the Tor Browser - through Tor is officially recommended against due to the possibility that they could leak identifying information, regardless of whether you believe you've successfully proxied them: torproject.org/docs/faq.html.en#TBBOtherBrowser Apr 30, 2016 at 18:45

I was able to resolve this by refreshing my dhcp through the terminal..

sudo dhclient -r  #refreshed ip
sudo dhclient  # restarted ip
