In the past few days, I faced a problem that never occurred to me before: when trying to access .onion sites, the page times out after trying to connect. This is what it says:

Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at --------.onion.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Tor Browser is permitted to access the Web. "

And several lines of the message below is what it's shown in the log :

mar 07 16:33:27.965 [Notifica] Closing stream for '[scrubbed].onion': hidden service is unavailable (try again later).

Can anyone help me? I'm kind of a beginner and don't know much about Tor settings and options, so I hope someone can help me understand. Thanks in advance!

  • Is this a problem you face with one particular onion site, or with all onion sites? – Linostar Mar 13 '15 at 20:56
  • All sites, even the most frequented ones – 94a94 Mar 14 '15 at 15:17
