Version 4.5.2 available.

smaragdus on 2015-09-05 03:36

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

rbon on 2018-09-22 16:46

Starting from version 8.0 Tor project builds both version of TorBrowser: 32 bit and 64 bit.
- TorBrowser page: https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html
- TorBrowser repository: https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/8.0.1/
So You can add on description the link for download 64 bit version 'torbrowser-install-win64-8.0.1_en-US.exe'

IrfanView's developer Irfan Skiljan kindly suggested a workaround for the broken webP.dll Plugin under Win XP :

Defender does not like 4.5 either. Tried 32 and 64 bit, neither will run. Standing with 4.3 64-bit.

webfork on 2019-04-26 21:13

@PAFuser - I'd recommend running it past VirusTotal rather than relying on Defender. It's very likely a false positive.

MoisheP on 2020-02-05 19:40

Finally, v. 4.8 can be installed on Windows without being aborted by Defender and it is no longer flagged by VirusTotalcom engines. The last two versions had been unusable for those reasons.

@Emka: Can you post in forums about what you're seeing? Sometimes if you have an add-on it will write to appdata.

  • Added 'Photo - Date Taken' option to set the date/time when the photo was taken. This feature is similar to the 'EXIF - Generated Time' option, but it uses the Property System of Windows, which may work better in some situations. For example: the 'Photo - Date Taken' option will set the photo date/time even if the original .jpg file doesn't contain EXIF information.

Good simple program that can bulk shift time + or - for video files for example that has been taken in a different timezone without changing the camera time before the shots.
