Ok it seems that pacman was the culprit here, not tor. I had a torrc.pacnew file which was causing the problem. I managed to fix it by doing the following: mv /etc/tor/torrc.pacnew /etc/tor/torrc Then I just added my personal configurations to the file

Smartphones based on ARM are not supported yet. Tails is based on Debian, and the support of smartphone specific issues (like touch screens) is not mature enough and widely supported for now

are there any security loopholes or anonymity breaches by downloading files from .onion sites to the second USB drive? Are there any give-aways during transmission. Even if Tails can't protect against compromised hardware, the internal Harddrive is not accessible from Tails by default, so an eventual attacker should not be able to make a copy of your data ...

This isn't quite true and you may not want to do that. The reason Tor randomly changes your browser resolution is actually to make you harder to find. The resolution in one session isn't going to be the same as in a previous one. In this, Tor goes for a more spoofing like technique rather than a blending in technique. In this context which one would be more ...

This is less technical and more of a moral view on the predicament. One of the points of Tor and free open source software in general is that the creators of said software may not dictate what you use their making for, and that the creators may not exempt you from usage of their software because they believe what your doing with it is "wrong". The ...

Obsf4 is a type of pluggable transport used with a bridge (unlisted Tor guard node) to let Tor users access the internet in countries which censor the Tor network. It does nothing against stopping websites from blocking Tor users. If the website is blocking Tor users, then it might not be possible to visit the site. Only the website owner has control on ...

I think that the best option is to uninstall the Tor browser completely, then reinstall it again with the latest version. Perhaps something may have gone wrong in the Tor browser's installation and you may have to install it again. If that still doesn't work, then file an issue in the Tor project's gitlab, located here: https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/...

Your DNS queries will be routed through Tor. Websites you access, specifically host names when your browser sends a query (DMS), will not be visible to your ISP. It should be noted however that your ISP will be able to see that you are using Tor. To obfuscate this you need to use a bridge.

Or if someone know a good place for buying hardware for my pc on dark web Please, do not buy hardware on the DarkWeb. It is mostly scam and when not, it is stolen property and buying it is not a good idea. Best, non-scam, up to date links you can find at http://darkfailllnkf4vf.onion/ (I don't vouch for this site, neither any sites by this link, information ...

Like Steve said it could install malware if you're running older versions of Tor. Also, going to sketchy sites saying they have free movies and all that can bring malware with it. Tl;Dr It could potentially give you malware, just update the browser and use your common sense. -Sam

This image shows what Network.http.sendRefererHeader does: The Tor browser has set Network.http.sendRefererHeader to 2 by default so it is allowing all requests. So by changing it, you will obviously have a different browser fingerprint and you can easily be identified (you would be the only Tor browser user who is blocking requests). The Tor Browser's ...

There are many security risks to using your camera with the Tor browser on websites. I'm pretty sure your location would be leaked in most cases. That said, let's move on. With normal browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, etc.), websites would use your camera and microphone through an API known as WebRTC. But, the Tor browser disables as it ...
