What is requirements for Onion v3 sites?

Greetings to the experts! I'm not can open any v3-sites (htt_://56characters.onion), but only v2-sites (htt_://16characters.onion) My noob brother must do something but not admits it, because now v3 never works anymore!

When going to friend's house, his TBB does always connect the same v3-sites properly. Its been many months now I'm frustrated, this a list of some v3 that never connect...

The v2-sites connect properly. Can anybody know some requirements/settings might for v3-sites?
I'm even updated to TBB v9.5.4, but maybe 'update' was bad decision, instead of 'install' newer version to help? With "Tools/WebDeveloper/Network", the only thing presents to screen is outgoing GET, nothing come back! This terrible because many sites now changing to v3, soon I'm to be deserted.

Greetings Steve. The laptop with Win8.1, and now Im using the TBB 10.0.7.

After installing 10.0.7, then I go straight to about:preferences#tor to get this log....

The v2-sites all conducted properly, but none on the v3-sites did ever answer.
In "Tools/WebDeveloper/Network", its the same like before, only showing GET, nothing come back. So then I exit TBB 10.0.7 to start it again, then to get this log...

1/10/21, 23:23:05.956 [NOTICE] Bootstrapped 10% (conn_done): Connected to a relay

1/10/21, 23:23:09.672 [NOTICE] New control connection opened from 127.0.0.1.

It looks better and gives me hope, but still none of the v3-sites did never answer. If this continues all the sites using v3, I'm soon to be like Gilligan, except on the moon.

  • The latest Tor Browser is v10.0.7, but v3 services should still work with your version. You should try re-installing the browser anyways just to see if that fixes it. What operating system are you using? Can you also follow these steps to post your tor log?

  • Thanks for adding the logs, everything there looks normal. Try double-checking your computer's clock, and make sure both the time and timezone are correct. You can also try disabling your anti-virus, since some are known to break Tor. If those don't work, try removing and re-installing Tor Browser.

  • Yes, the clock is perfect, and no anti-virus running. There is not "Tor" presenting inside the "ControlPanel/ProgramsAndFeatures" because its just inside a folder like "portable".

  • Okay so did you try installing to a new folder?

  • Yes, the 'TBB-10.0.7' is brand new folder, Im not just renamed it. Everything inside the TBB-10.0.7 folder comes direct from the installing .exe , Im not altering anything yet. It was the same with 9.5.4, but I was hoping maybe the 10.0.7 does better.

V3 concensus servers are under some kind of attack. Read here: https://www.reddit.com/r/deepweb/comments/kv1z8o/11_jan_2021_v3_onion_services_should_be_reachable/

  • Thanks for reply! Its unfortunate, but Im thinking this not my problem, because its been a long time problem... I just go to friends house, and his computer connected most the v3 sites, but then coming home, none connect for me.. Many thanks for replying.
