Just installed Tor but everytime I try to search the search engine won't work
does anybody know whats causing this.
Are you using the portable Firefox that comes with Tor ? Are you using the search box on the toolbar ? Have you tried temp disabling Tor, at the FF status bar?
So many questions I know, but more info may get you more help. I use Tor not really for anonymity, but just to pretend to the BBc that I'm in UK, to watch iPlayer.
I'm using the Tor plugin
You might try changing youe ExitNodes. I've noticed with some UK ExitNodes, that e.g. www.boards.ie wouldn't work thru Tor, I think it was a DNS problem of some kind.
Where do I find that "Exitnodes". To sum this up Tor dosent let anything through
also be careful about using Tor.
Tor protects you from the destination web site identifying your ip address. but the owner of the Tor Exit Node can (and likely does) read all unencrypted data passing through it. don't use passwords, usernames, cookies or send data that you don't want read by a nosey exit node provider.
There are some good youtube tutorials on using tor. Have a search and see what you can find.
Apologies for this but just to make sure. You did install tor AND the tor plugin for firefox right?
I've installed the entire Tor package For Firefox plugin included, but the problem seems concern search.
ie "searching key words" Put search term into box and press search and nothing happens at all tried
different search engines bit probably still exists.
This makes tor much simpler to use, it come ready configured as a modified version of FF.

"The proxy server is refusing connections
Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.
* Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.
* Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is
Any suggestions - bearing in mind that I am no computer expert.
