Tor Browser 8.0.2

Tor Browser

Protect your privacy. Defend yourself against network surveillance and traffic analysis.

Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody from watching your Internet connection and learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

The Tor Browser Bundle lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained.

Tor Browser 8.0.2 changelog (all platforms):

  • Update Firefox to 60.2.1esr
  • Backport fix for Mozilla bug 1493900 and 1493903

OS X

  • Backport fix for Mozilla bug 1489785 for macOS 10.14 compatibility

Known Issues:

  • WebGL is broken right now.
  • Accessibility support is broken on Windows. We are considering options to address this issue right now.
  • Tor Browser 8 is not starting anymore on some older Ubuntu/Mint Linux systems. We still have issues to reproduce this bug but hope we can fix it in the next release.
  • Tor Browser 8 is not starting anymore on CentOS 6. We have a fix in our 8.5a2 release to give it a bit of testing. Users affected by this bug may resort to that alpha version for now. We plan to backport the patch in the next stable release.
  • NoScript is not saving per-site permissions anymore. We have a potential patch for this bug in our 8.5a2 release as well and plan to backport it, too, in the next stable release in case no issues with it are found.
  • While preparing the 8.0.2 release we encountered intermittent reproducibility failures for Linux (64bit) bundles.
