Now perknh, you just need to (in Tor) visit:-

https://start.peppermintos.com
or
https://start.peppermintos.com/perknhs-personal-startpage.html
or
https://start.peppermintos.com/perknhs-personal-startpage2.html

click the button labelled "Click here to add Peppermint search to your browser" .. and when asked, tick "Make this the current search engine"

Then set the Peppermint startpage as your browser start/home page .. and you're all sorted ;)

This is really good in Firefox, loving it  ;D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

I "test drove" Tor and found it wasn't for me. I followed the instructions above and Tor was removed. However, it is still listed in my menu under "Internet" . How do I remove it? I am running Peppermint 8.

Did you try sudo apt autoremove?

They think I'm in Germany right now, on a corporate network, via Firefox, on top of winders 10


Hi VinDSL,

I'm crazy about this tor browser !! In every new tab that I open, and then visit

www.ipaddress.com/what-is-my-ip-address/

it shows me to be at another location (just now, three tabs: one shows me somewhere in Germany, one shows me somewhere in France, and the third in Montreal, Canada -- and each time on some sort of Windoze release, such as Win10 or Win NT  :D )

Super!!  8)

Regards,

Hi Everyone,

I am doing this without TOR browser but using Brave Browser with "Trace" ext. as well as my usual ad block/anti-tracking extensions.

Brave builds in a TOR Browser into it, but i never use the TOR private window function since I think I am doing OK already without it.

It will change address every time I re-open the browser and will also "lie" by saying that my browser and OS is not what it really is.

Right now it is saying I am using Windows with the Safari Browser. I do not think that Safari will even work on Windows so I think this is a good fake out.

Hello everybody!

Strong love for Firefox and also for Epiphany. Especially Epiphany is the browser I am paying attention to. I like the fact that there is a non-Chromium based browser next to Firefox around. I know that Epiphany is not working in all situations with 100% of satisfaction guaranteed (3.28.5 needs to be updated for sure, as 3.34.1 is there with sandboxing technology). But even 3.28.5 (3.28.6 is waiting for SRU) with firejail is a strong combo.

Tor was removed but I still have the shortcut under Menu/Internet.

UPDATE: Solved, using Settings/Menu editor

This should remove the launcher (so remove it from the menu):
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.local/share/applications/start-tor-browser.desktop
