My Computer is a PC, not a MAC. But I cannot connect to the Onion sites. Whenever I try, i get the following message:

The proxy server is refusing connections

Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.
Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.

Is the problem Firefox? Is it the Proxy settings? What am I supposed to change?

  • I’m not sure anyone can say without more detail. Can you post the settings you’re using in Firefox? And how are you setting up the Tor proxy (what settings have you set in your torrc)? Finally are you sure the tor process is running and is listening for SOCKS connections? – Steve Mar 31 at 1:20
