update 9.0 on Mac not working - The proxy server is refusing connections

Tor Asked by Andy M on February 2, 2021

There used to be an option: Advanced > Network > Settings
that’s gone, so can’t even select No Proxy
Also, config:about network.proxy.socks_remote_dns : settings this to false doesn’t work either

can we reinstall the good old version ?

One Answer

The option you speak of (Advanced > Network > Settings) has been moved. You can now find it by going to preferences > Tor. The Advanced proxy settings are found at the bottom of the page.

If removing the proxy doesn't fix the error, try one of this:

  • Do you have an antivirus? It may be interfering with the Tor service. Try disabling the antivirus, if any.

  • Did you by any chance move the Tor folder from its original location to a different location? If you did, revert this change.

  • Check the port. Ideally, you should be on port 9050.

  • Reinstall the program. But this time, make sure to install Tor Browser Bundle in a new directory, not over a previously installed bundle.
