    Exclamation Tor & Privoxy problem

    The proxy server is refusing connections

    Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

    * Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.

    * Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is
    working.

    So, Tor was installed with Privoxy, it worked after the initial installation, then when I restarted my computer it gave me the message above.

    Are there any simple step by step instructions on fixing this?

    My guess is you need to configure privoxy, change the listen line from "localhost:8118: to 127.0.0.1:8118"
