I noticed some old bridges and deleted them. Tor still tries to connect to them.

Is there any place that tor reaches the bridge beside etc/tor/torrc?

If I understand you correctly, you are looking for other files containing tor configuration data.

Having a look at the manual:


Specify a new configuration file to contain further Tor configuration options OR pass - to make Tor read its configuration from standard input. (Default: @CONFDIR@/torrc, or $HOME/.torrc if that file is not found)

It seems there may exist another file located in your home directory ($HOME/.torrc) which could contain the faulty configuration you wish to eliminate.

If you can't find this file, try searching for other files containing torrc in their name : )
