I'm running Windows 8 and Savant 3.1. I have the DNS set to localhost:80 and it works in a normal browser.
Here's where the problem sits. I add the following to the bottom of
HiddenServiceDir C:\Users\abc\tor_service HiddenServicePort 80 127.0.0.1:80
Initially, TBB would tell me that it couldn't connect to localhost.com. I reinstalled Tor and did everything again. For a short period, it just wasn't making any connection to the .onion address I was assigned, nevermind a localhost. Now it's back to the localhost.com problem:
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.localhost.com.

Giving up, very sad, sounds exhausted. How can I fix the problem and finish the set up of a hidden service?
