So wierd. I faced this problem in my windows. I figured the issue could be similar with my tor browser aswell. The tor browser application is in a new folder in Desktop. Recently I move everything from my desktop to another new folder in my desktop. Started having this issue. I moved the files back to how it was and then tor started working. Bizarre. Hope ...

Late reply: I guess that this happens because of a proxy. In that case go to the settings of torbrowser-launcher with the following command: torbrowser-launcher --settings Then tick ''Download over system Tor'' and click on ''Install Tor Browser''.

There is no direct problem in connecting to Tor from the connection that you also use to perform other activities, assuming that it is safe for you to use Tor in the first place (I.E. that it's not illegal for you to use Tor in the first place). Infact the more people who can openly use Tor, the safer that it will be to use Tor since it's use will lose ...

May I suggest that you try the onion address for DuckDuckgo? : https://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/ It's what I use and find it well, cleaner in the way it presents itself. Also, and I don't know if it will make a significant difference on your end, my input is that perhaps you may not want to use NordVpn, or any VPN in the onion network. If for no other ...

HATEthePLOT, the problem with my relay appears to be corrected. All five active bwauth servers are measuring my relay. The three bwauth servers that were previously egress blocked by my firewall (pfSense) are measuring my relay at a low number, but I think this may be part of the lifecycle of a new relay: https://blog.torproject.org/lifecycle-new-relay ...

I have run a Tor relay for fifteen years, and I am seeing a similar issue with my relay. For privacy reasons, I apologize in advance for not listing my relay's nickname. According to Tor Metrics, on 2020-02-26 both my relay and your relay began receiving a Consensus Weight of 20 (Additional Flag: Unmeasured). Both of our relays are non-exit, middle-nodes ...

proxies = { 'http': 'socks5h://127.0.0.1:9050', 'https': 'socks5h://127.0.0.1:9050' socks proxies are not the same as http/https proxies. You can't interchange the two. you will need to use a library that specifically uses socks proxies because they are not compatible. from wikipedia: SOCKS operates at a lower level than HTTP proxying: SOCKS ...

Looking like Tor may be censored or otherwise blocked on your network. Your best bet is to use a bridge. As a precaution though, before going all put just try restarting Tor browser or reinstalling, sometimes that helps

the messages are there for a reason... please read it and act accordingly: Received NETINFO cell with skewed time (OR:154.35.175.225:443): It seems that our clock is behind by 5 hours, 5 minutes, or that theirs is ahead. Tor requires an accurate clock to work: please check your time, timezone, and date settings. it seems that your clock is out of sync... ...

Ok. Had the same problem once. The issue is an user called "debian-tor" on Linux should own /var/lib/Tor and /etc/tor You have to use chown as sudo sudo chown -R debian-tor /var/lib/tor sudo chown -R debian-tor /etc/tor On windows, I believe the best solution is to check the permission of the folder Tor is in - allow all for everybody

It looks like the Tor service you are trying to connect to is down. You should try later, or contact the server operator Also, you should try restarting Tor browser: it may be a bad circuit

I recommend deleting the application, and re-installing. Download the version of Tor compatible with your machine from Tor Project. You can check whether your system is 64-bit or 32-bit by opening a terminal and typing getconf LONG_BIT. The number returned determines which version of Tor you will download.

I struggled with this same problem until I allowed the following 2 applications thru Controlled Folder Access: firefox.exe in the folder: \Tor Applications\Tor Browser\Browser\ and tor.exe in the folder: \Tor Applications\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Tor\ After doing this, I was able to turn "Controlled Folder Access" to ON, and start up Tor Browser ...

tl;dr Every connection to a hidden service is anonymous and encrypted. This is just a UX bug. The absence of a lock (or a "secure connection" message) just means that the site you're connected to doesn't uses TLS. However since your connecting to the site using a hidden service, the connection is encrypted no matter if TLS is used or not. The UX of this ...

So I believe I found the answer to this, in case anyone stumbles across this... According to a thread on Tor's bug tracker, this is "normal" and is only a concern if the number is greater than 60. Quoting user "theor": Feel free to ignore this, if all the numbers are less than 60. (60 is 1% of a relay's 6000 connections to other relays.) Otherwise, ...

The problem is due to missing Pluggable-Transports configuration. The Pluggable-Transports configuration exists within the torrc-defaults file. You can include it using --defaults-torrc like this: "C:\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Tor\tor.exe" --defaults-torrc "C:\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\torrc-defaults" -f "C:\Tor Browser\Browser\...

I found out that I hadn't burrowed deep enough into the Tor browser folders but when i did i found the tor.exe file which i then gave access through my firewall and, voila, Tor Browser works fine. I hope the OP and others find this helpful.

I had the same issue and then I realized that I ignored the initial pop-up when starting Tor that suggests to move the downloaded .dmg file to Applications (just as @bradreaves recommends above in his comment). Just a note to myself, because the .dmg file was already in Applications when the above window popped up after double clicking the .dmg: Click on ...

Try using other pluggable transports such as: meek-amazon meek-azure fte ... If no one works then try to use IPv6 normal bridges (which you can get at bridges.torproject.org).
