Why does Tor button not work on Firefox 4 and will you fix this?

Posted

I live in Saudi Arabia and to bypass the censorship i use Tor, https://www.torproject.org/index.html.en this

worked on previous versions of Firefox but not on 4. If this will not be fixed i will have to downgrade to an older version of Firefox, which i don't want to do.

Th Tor project are working on a version of their add-on for Firefox 4. You can install the alpha version that includes Firefox 4 support from https://www.torproject.org/torbutton

Note, that as this is an alpha version there may be bugs with the add-on.

Thanks Tony, it is a relief that it is being worked on, i have donated to Tor as i cannot live with censorship therefore can't live without Tor :-)
