I was reading about TOR https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor and
thought I would try it out.
I installed TOR using the TOR repo. It is running (along with polipo)
and works with Chrome. But I can't get it to work with Firefox 3.6.3.
I think Firefox is blocking non standard ports because I also can't
get to the polipo config (with TOR disabled) at this address:
http://localhost:8123/polipo/config? I have no problem getting to it
An error message displays that says this:
" This address is restricted This address uses a network port which
is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has
canceled the request for your protection."
Does anyone know if Firefox blocks non-standard ports, and if so how
to make changes?
