I removed default Firefox (v25) on Fedora 20 and install Firefox 30. I use Tor and i set Tor on Firefox. Tor-browser can open and , but firefox v30 can't (with same proxy settings). I removed Firefox v30 with yum, and manually removed ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla, and install again. But showed me "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at" again...

What is the problem?

I have firefox 30 from the Fedora repos. What version of Fedora are you using?

@Qucco sometimes when you post exactly the same thing twice in a row, both posts are mistakenly deleted. It's probably an honest mistake by both you and the moderators.

What I'd like to know is how you've installed firefox 30. If it was just from the standard Fedora repos using yum, we can replicate what you've done. If you installed it some other way, you should explain how, or better yet, stop doing it some other way and get it from the Fedora repos.

It would also help to know how you have configured Tor with firefox, so we can check for problems in the configuration.

@randomuser i installed Firefox from Fedora repos. And i install tor from Fedora repoes too. I enabled tor service and change Firefox proxy setting to Tor. I tested this tor service on other browsers without problems. Tor works well. Firefox show me "Unable to connect" when i try to open Twitter or Youtube.

its better to use the Tor browser bundle package from the EFF site itself, extract and use.
