The word "bridge" appeared as my entry (guard) node, for no apparent reason
For some reason, my Tor Circuit appeared strange recently -- normally, the Tor Circuit displays the entry (guard) node as having an IP Address and a country -- however, recently (in the Tor Circuit display) the entry (guard) node appeared as the word "bridge", with no country and no IP address. What does this mean, and is it normal?
I haven't manually set up any bridges, so why is my entry (guard) node appearing simply as the word "bridge"? Netstat shows a familiar Tor entry (guard) node IP address as currently active.
Note that after I closed the browser and reopened it, the Tor Circuit went back to normal.
