With earlier versions I could put proxy in network options, now when I put https proxy there, write address and port, and choose proxy type "http/https", Tor doesn't accept it, it says error, somethin about "can't have two types" or something.

Why's that now?

  • How do you add a proxy? Please describe what menus you click. Maybe also a screenshot is helpful here.

  • Please post your torrc config - it will clarify the issue

It's a known issue that will be fixed in the next release caused by the addition of pluggable transport support. For more information, see #11658 Unable to set the proxy in TBB 3.6 in the Tor Project's bug tracking system.

A short term solution would be to manually edit the "Data/Tor/torrc-defaults" file and comment out all the lines that begin with "ClientTransportPlugin", but you will not be able to use obfs2/obfs3/flashproxy/fte to connect to the Tor network.
