I have downloaded and installed Tor. Now, I wanted to use Tor to visit some of the blocked websites that our government had mistakenly blocked. So, I changed the proxy settings in my Firefox to point at localhost:9150.
Now, when I check my IP address, it is masked, but I'm still not able to visit the blocked website.
If I use the Tor Browser Bundle, however, I am able to visit the site.
So what is the difference in the settings in my Firefox and the Tor Browser??
PS: The blocked website I am trying to visit is github!! Yes, it was banned in India recently but soon the ban was lifted. My ISP is lazy though. They are still blocking it.
