This question is an exact duplicate of:

Browser looks like it's connected to Tor, (I see Tor congratulations page and green onion Tor enabled button) but cannot connect to any websites ( its always "connecting" in browser tab then times out with problems loading page error).I've tried changing identity.

I have no problems loading websites like chrome or Safari when connected to net not using Tor.

  • I'm assuming you are otherwise connected to the internet (obvious question I know). So maybe you have a firewall on your router or a software firewall running on the Mac ? It may well need configuring to work with Tor. I managed to stop Tor working once for a while by playing with PFfirewall. – user975 Jan 19 '14 at 3:36

You're not using Sophos by any chance?

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/10521

  • Welcome to Tor.SE! It would be great if you could expand this, perhaps with a short summary of the bug you've linked to. You could also add things like how to check if Sophos is running, and how to change the Sophos settings to solve this problem. (I know that those steps are in the bug report, but a good answer should be able to stand on its own without any of the links - incase the links stop working in the future). – Megan Walker Jan 19 '14 at 12:35
