Tor Browser does not work with hardware Tor-router

Hi all,

I have been using Tor Browser for a long time, thank you for its excellent work!

Then I bought a hardware Tor-router.
Firefox, Chromium and other browsers work successfully through it.
Unfortunately, Tor Browser does not want to work through this router.
Why is this happening and how can I fix this problem?

I have heard that the browser needs to be reconfigured if you are going to use the system daemon to send all of the machine’s traffic to the Tor network. Maybe in your case you need to do the same thing.

I’m not sure how to do it right, so check out this thread and look into tor-browser_en/Browser/start-tor-browser Where you will find

# Additionally, if using a system-installed Tor, the following about:config
# options should be set (values in <> mean they are the value taken from your
# torrc):
# SETTING NAME                            VALUE
#           [...],<SocksPort>,<ControlPort>
# network.proxy.socks           
# network.proxy.socks_port                <SocksPort>
# extensions.torbutton.inserted_button    true
# extensions.torbutton.launch_warning     false
# extensions.torbutton.loglevel           2
# extensions.torbutton.logmethod          0
# extensions.torlauncher.control_port      <ControlPort>
# extensions.torlauncher.loglevel          2
# extensions.torlauncher.logmethod         0
# extensions.torlauncher.prompt_at_startup false
# extensions.torlauncher.start_tor         false
# where the '[...]' in the banned_ports option means "leave anything that was
# already in the preference alone, just append the things specified after it".

Sorry, I forgot to add the link.

Thanks, I’ll try your advice :slightly_smiling_face:
