Even when I'm not using Tor or any proxy, I can't connect check.torproject.org. The circular icon would turn and turn in the tab for several minutes, then the message below. Am I the only one with this problem? Meanwhile, I am able to connect to other sites without any problems. Using Tor or just a normal browser. Can I trust that I am using Tor even when unable to verify via check.torproject.org?
*Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at check.torproject.org.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Tor Browser is permitted to access the Web.*
