I downloaded Tor a few days ago and It will not allow me to see any .onion sites. All other sites seem to be working but when I try hidden services I get Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at XXXXXXXXXX. I have tried many options. I have even turned off my firewall. Nothing Happened.

  • Are you using TBB or regular Firefox? If you are using regular Firefox try switching to the Tor browser bundle. It could also be that due to the short life/periodic up time of most hidden sevices they were simply unreachable. I personally have found approx 90% percent of hidden services to be down.

  • The hidden services you are trying to access may be down. Try the Duck Duck Go hidden service at 3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion or the example hidden service at duskgytldkxiuqc6.onion (both of which are fairly reliable) and see if they work.

  • Same problem on android 4.4.2.. I know the services are not down because I can accesses them in my PC (windows) and my phone (android 5).
