Firefox Nightly recently updated to the new UI they beta'd under the Firefox Preview moniker. The proxy settings I had in
about:config got wiped out but reinstating the exact same settings is getting me the following message in the browser, presumably from Orbot itself:
This in HTTP CONNECT tunnel, not an HTTP proxy.
It appears you have configured your web browser to use this Tor port as an HTTP proxy.
This is not correct: This port is configured as a CONNECT tunnel, not an HTTP proxy. Please configure your client accordingly. You can also use HTTPS; then the client should automatically use HTTP CONNECT.
See https://torproject.org/documentation.html for more information.
These are the
about:config settings I've currently configured:
network.proxy.http = 127.1 network.proxy.http_port = 8118 network.proxy.socks = 127.1 network.proxy.socks_port = 9050 network.proxy.ssl = 127.1 network.proxy.ssl_port = 8118 network.proxy.type = 1
On the same device, F-Droid configured to use Tor also functions without issue. Granted, I can't see what ports it uses by default, but such settings has gone unchanged before or after the aforementioned Firefox update.
