When starting up the Tor browser, I got a message saying:
That wasn't an issue, I've gotten this message before and I just have to close Tor browser and open it up again and it would fix. However, when I went to https://check.torproject.org to confirm that Tor wasn't working, I got this:
which really confused me. So either the browser was giving the false message or the website was giving the false message though I strongly suspected it was the browser. I also checked if I could access a hidden service and I could:
From this I understood that the Tor browser was giving an incorrect message and that Tor was working. I was even able to see my circuit when reaching Facebook's onion service:
So I was certain that Tor was working by now. With this information, I have a few questions:
- Do I report this bug to the Tor project's Gitlab or has this already been reported and is being fixed?
- If possible to answer, why is this even happening?
- Can I change the Tor browser manually to fix this?
- Any other information on this would be helpful so I could understand the problem better.
When this bug occured, I was using Windows 10 OS instead of Linux (I usually use Linux, but I didn't use it at the moment). If you guys need anymore information about my device, just comment below and I will edit this post to add the information. Thank you.
