I have a new problem with tor-browser. Actually in recent when I open tor-browser an error shown with these description: "Error starting download: connection was refused by other side: 111: connection refused. Are you connected to the internet?" and I clearly know that I 'm connected to internet. Time ago (about 1 month) I installed it and I used of tor-browser without any error! Here is a picture of error to better understand: enter image description here

Now how can I solve this problem?

  • Try deleting tor and then downloading it again. Might be an update issue Aug 3 '17 at 18:53
  • I tried this solution for 2 times but it doesn't work at all. Is there any way to solve this problem?

  • Another late reply: I was struggling with this, tried every fix (re-install, install latest version via adding @micahflee to apt-repository, etc and couldn't figure out what was wrong. Then I went on VPN. And it worked just fine. Seems to me my ISP was blocking the download.

Late reply: I guess that this happens because of a proxy. In that case go to the settings of torbrowser-launcher with the following command:

torbrowser-launcher --settings

Then tick ''Download over system Tor'' and click on ''Install Tor Browser''.
