Tor Browser cannot bind SOCKS port 9050: How to change browser settings? (not torrc)
I’m having a frustrating problem. I have no router right now, and am at the mercy of the ISP gateway, and they don’t give permission to port 9050. Starting Tor Browser, I instantly get closed unexpectedly/error, with no log message whatsoever. But running tor.exe manually I found the problem. (Permission denied [WSAEACCES])
I changed torrc SOCKS port to 443 and it works, tor.exe is starting. BUT, the actual browser will not start, it gives the same unexpected error. Tor service actually works though, if I enter the local proxy manually into my standard browser it reaches onion links. But that is not really a solution. I have tried looking through prefs.js and sqlite files but could not find any option for either proxy settings or ‘9050’. Can I change the proxy port manually without starting TorBrowser/FF?
(A completely fresh bundle will not start either)
