Any Help with Proxo & Torbutton?
Any help getting Proxo working with Torbutton - latest Vidalia bundle
https://blog.torproject.org/

Torbutton sets ports to 8118. No help pointing Proxo's "External Proxy Selector" to "localhost:8118 TOR".

RE: Any Help with Proxo & Torbutton?
Do you only use the Proxomitron while using Tor?

I have the browser's http proxy settings aimed at the Proxomitron. The Proxomitron's proxy setting are what I would change,
Proxo>Polipo>Tor.

I think torbutton only changes the browser's proxy settings.

How is that accomplished?

Always used Proxo without & with Tor (Torbutton disabled), until latest Vidalia version replaced Privoxy with Polipo.

Using Torbutton is now described as critical for Firefox security issues, but activating it disables Proxo, and chokes my dialup with advertising & graphics.

You could add 127.0.0.1:8118 Polipo to Proxomitron, enable Proxo's "Use Remote Proxy",
, start Vidalia, Polipo, and Tor. Disable "Use Remote Proxy" to not use Tor.
I am assuming that Vidalia configures and auto starts Polipo and Tor.

You could also have a Tor cfg and/or Tor enabling/disabling filters.

Assuming that the Proxomitron is at 127.0.0.1:8080
, Polipo is at 127.0.0.1:8118
, and Torbutton has the preference screen I found on the internet.

Try this:
Set Firefox to use the Proxomitron, 127.0.0.1:8080. Make sure that it works.
Add 127.0.0.1:8118 polipo to Proxomitron and enable.
Open the Torbutton preferences' Proxy Settings tab and set HTTP Proxy and SSL Proxy to 127.0.0.1:8080
Start Vidalia, Tor, and Polipo.
At this point, I think your data should be sent to Tor regardless of the Torbutton.
Enabling the Torbutton will only enable those "critical for Firefox security issues" things.
I'll try to test it later.

Yes, that did it. Everything works.
1) Firefox & Proxo are running normally, Torbutton custom setting to: 8080
2) Vidalia bundle is started separately
3) Proxo's "Use Remote Proxy" is selected
a) After "127.0.0.1:8118 Polipo" is set as "External Proxy Selector"
b) Or after bottom of Proxo's "default.cfg" is edited as follows:

[Proxies]
OpenLog = TRUE
>127.0.0.1:8118 polipo

4) Tor function checked at: http://network-tools.com/analyze/
5) Proxo Log window confirms filtering activity

Many Thanks JJoe
