Careful with tor and Konqueror

Posted 04-11-2009 at 05:43 PM by xri

After playing with tor + privoxy + tork with Konqueror, y finally decided to remove all three privacy programs and go back to regular use of Konqueror.

Prior to uninstall tork, I reconfigured Konqueror for use without tor.

However, after removing the programs I found that accessing some SSL sites was not possible. Finding information about that was not easy this time.

The browsing settings on Kcontrol had cookies, cache and java disabled. The privacy programs had disabled them and the "configure Konqueror for normal use" did not return these settings to default. I don't know exactly which disabled my access to some SSL sites but I changed the three settings to their default values.

After that, Konqueror started working as usual.
