I almost thought a Torbutton install post was pointless, ailment until I realized a lot of people still manage to screw it up.
Somehow. I have no idea exactly how…
Anyways, onward! I will assume you have read http://insecurety.net/?p=847 and http://insecurety.net/?p=842 and gotten TOR working for you.
The following works on any platform once TOR/Vidalia is installed. TORbutton makes irreversable changes to Firefox, so you should install Firefox specifically for this!
In Firefox navigate to torproject.org/torbutton
Click the install link near bottom of page. The one that reads “Expert Install” “Install from this page”
Allow it to do voodoo magic.
Once Torbutton installs and Firefox restarts, navigate to check.torproject.org
If you are seeing this, it clearly worked and you are good to go! Now onward we go!
