I have used Tor browser for years with now problems at all. When i try it now it says that the proxy is missing (and/or network which is working well) and to contact Tor itself.

Gives me this error message:

Can anyone help? I know that the 'disablenetwork' thing is set but i have no clue about how to fix any of this. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

That is a red herring and not an actual error:

Tor Browser sets DisableNetwork (which prevents just the tor daemon from making outgoing network connections) when it first starts up to prevent an unconfigured tor daemon from making connections, but will unset it once it's satisfied that the user has had the opportunity to configure things. This happens on each launch, regardless of if the bridge configuration UI is displayed. Unless you have been messing with the tor daemon's configuration in fairly exotic and non-standard ways, any and all messages related to DisableNetwork are expected parts of the Tor Browser startup process, and should be ignored.

I would suggest deleting all versions of Tor on your machine and redownloading the latest version from the tor project website at https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en

  • I don't know much about Tor except that it works. – david Lawrie Mar 24 at 22:05
  • (I keep pressing enter to shift lines!) It's always worked perfectly. I don't meess with its insides. I wouldnt know where to start. I have deleted it several times and installed it again from Time Machine but still the same. I have old OSX, 10.6.8 and i can't update it any more so the newest verson of Tor won't install. I have found sites with older versions but still they give me same result. I will thoroughly delete the old and install best version i can find and see how it goes. Thanks again. – david Lawrie Mar 24 at 22:12
