Haven't used Tor in awhile. While searching first topically, I was timing out; then I got an error saying that Firefox was unable to find the (or connect to) the server for ... I finally tried Amazon, still no results. The search bar indicates something about Google and Disconnect.me; in the past, I thought that Tor was its own browser and from what I can see, Disconnect me is a VPN, of which I have one already. (I've turned it on and then off while trying to search.)
I don't understand what is happening and if something can be changed; would appreciate suggestions, guidance.
