I just realized that on certain websites the tor-browser ignores my exit node policy.

I specify a certain country as exit node but on certain websites the circuit changes on its own and I receive exit nodes all around the world. With other websites it is working as intended.

One website where I have seen this behavior at https://www.4chan.org/ or www.mixloud.com for example. But there are many others too, which I do not want to list.

  1. Is this behavior intended?
  2. Is there any solution to this?
cat torrc
# This file was generated by Tor; if you edit it, comments will not be preserved
# The old torrc file was renamed to torrc.orig.1, and Tor will ignore it
