TorBrowser Proxy Configuration

From Whonix

Complete the following steps inside Whonix-Workstation ™ (anon-whonix). Launch Tor Browser and enter about:config into the URL bar. Change the following settings.

  • Set extensions.torbutton.use_nontor_proxy to true
  • Set network.proxy.no_proxies_on to 0.

Add the HTTP proxy address and port number to the following strings.

  • network.proxy.http
  • network.proxy.http_port

If a HTTPS proxy is being used, modify the following strings instead.

  • network.proxy.ssl
  • network.proxy.ssl_port

This process can be repeated with socks proxies, but it is redundant and does not provide any advantage over the former types. The reason is because only Tor Browser is modified and no other programs are being tunneled through it.
