I click for 'new tor circuit for this site' and it remains locked in on a certain IP (listed in title) after 'this browser'. That never happened before...Can I change that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


please post your torrc and tor log/output and for how long it's locked? I'll be able to help you further if I will have more info


The first of the three relays in the circuit is called the entry guard.

The entry guard will stay the same for a period of time (several months - this is called the rotation period), even when you create a new circuit. This is expected and by design.

See this previous question: In Tor Browser, I connect to the exact same entry node all the time, unable to change it

Edit: Actually, this is similar enough to be a duplicate, IMO.
