That is why we have made this list. It contains six easy solutions to this specific problem, in case you encounter it when using the Tor browser. These solutions are easy to understand. Just read through this article and follow every step. It happens on some occasions that after you close the Tor browser on your system, you find that it presents difficulties when you want to reopen it. This situation occurs because the Tor browser is still running on the background, but you do not notice this as the app seems to be closed.
Basically, if this occurs, what you do is that you go to your task manager and end task of the Tor browser to stop the app from running then you can open the app again. If this problem persists, you can simply restart your system. Having antivirus protection on your system is good.
Sometimes, however, it can be a problem by being overprotective in the sense that the antivirus you install on your system can interfere with other apps you install by preventing it from running. It is annoying when your antivirus is preventing you from using apps that are not infected with viruses. But as we know, antiviruses are built to protect your system so you do not have to blame it for doing its job. To stop this problem from occurring, simply what you need to do is to block the antivirus software from interfering with the Tor browser.
Antivirus software is of different types, so you may need consultation of the documentation for the antivirus you are using if you do not know how to block the interference of the antivirus. Firewalls are security apps that filter all the data that enters your computer from the internet. It is also used for blocking potentially harmful programs that request access to your windows machine. At times the firewall is the reason why you are unable to access a page or site on the internet through your Tor browser.
In order to stop this all you need to do is to temporarily disable your firewall so you can access the page or site. The Tor browser works with accurate date and time i. It is possible because while exchanging the data, it uses a random overlay network that consists of thousands of relays. Moreover, the forwarded data traffic will also be in encrypted form, thus it becomes impossible to identify the source where the request was generated, hence, you leave no trace while using the Tor network.
Users can manually set the security level and whether they want to use the Tor Network or not because while it the speed of accessing the web will be decreased. I always recommend my readers to run a system update command before installing some applications.
Because it not only update the already installed packages of the system but also rebuilds the repository cache so that our system could fetch and install the latest packages. There is a pre-build application called Tor browser Launcher which meant to download and verify the signature for the browser. Just run the below command. You will see two icons, click on the Tor Launcher one. Wait for a few minutes, it will verify the key and also download the browser to install on your system.
