Firefox 3.5.7 Beta Release

Mozzilla devolopers are now testing the next stable build of the Firefox 3.5.x series. Firefox 3.5.7 is now available as a beta build for TESTERS to try out. The 3.5.7 dev update milestone follows closely on the heels of the Firefox 3.5.6 update which came out December 2009.

Please note that installing Firefox 3.5 will overwrite your existing installation of Firefox. You won’t lose any of your bookmarks or browsing history, but some of your extensions and other add-ons might not work until updates for them are made available. You can reinstall an older version later if you wish to downgrade.

Tor Onion network guide

Tor Onion network guide

Tor (The Onion Router) is a free software implementation of second-generation onion routing – a system which claims to enable its users to communicate more anonymously on the Internet.




#### WARNING! ####
Content on the Tor Onions may be illegal, if by any chance, you save content, save this at a secure place!!! (prefered a encrypted drive)
Second of all if you save images and view it with Nautilus it saves thumbnails in /home/[USERNAME]/.thumbnails aka your home directory. Onces again a reason for encrypting (at least) your home directory
#### WARNING! ####

Run from terminal or alt +f2

firefox -no-remote -Profilemanager

Create an extra profile (remember the name of the profile ) and run it. Now in Firefox go to edit –> preferences

   remove the startpage
   Select the Content tab and uncheck java and javascript!!! (can be used to trace you!!!)
   Select the tab [Privacy]     check the second option from the bottom (delete on close Firefox) and click on the option to the right of it and check everything.
  *optinal: uncheck the bottom option, ask when deleting, it gets annoying…

Then open the "main menu" editor, system –> preferences
create a new starter and type in: firefox -no-remote -P [PROFILE NAME]
this way you can start it from your menu

Open software sources, go to the second tab, third party sources and add the following line: (rename <DISTRIBUTION> to your distro, jaunty for example)

deb http://mirror.noreply.org/pub/tor <DISTRIBUTION> main

deb http://mirror.noreply.org/pub/tor jaunty main
deb http://mirror.noreply.org/pub/tor intrepid main
deb http://mirror.noreply.org/pub/tor hardy main

Now run the following line in terminal and confirm everything ( y followed by an enter )
sudo apt-get install libevent1 libevent-dev zlib1g zlib1g-dev openssl torbutton-extension privoxy tor

### privoxy config ###

open terminal and type:

cd /etc/privoxy
sudo nano config

Then add the line to the top of the config file. Don’t forget to add the dot at the end.

forward-socks4a / .

Privoxy keeps a log file of everything passed through it. In order to stop this you will need to comment out two lines by inserting a # before the line. The three lines are:

logfile logfile
and the line
jarfile jarfile (ubuntu 9.04 –> allready commented out (as far as I know))

Now save and exit nano and type:

sudo privoxy

Now enable tor in Firefox at the right bottom by clicking on it with your right mouse button.

Check if it works by going to: http://check.torproject.org/ or https://check.torproject.org/

### TOR button config ###

Open the second tab, Security Settings.
Open the sub-tab , Shutdown and select the third option, Clear cookies during any browser shutdown.
Now Open the last sub-tab, headers, make sure the first 2 are checked. (Last one if prefered)
