Accessing Onion VPN in Firefox 45 and newer



Starting with release 45 the Firefox browser (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/45.0/releasenotes/) is actively blocking .onion domains.

You can fix this by editing the Firefox config manually:

  • access the config by typing „about:config“ in the browser address bar and pressing the enter key
  • search for „dotOnion“
  • change the value of „network.dns.blockDotOnion“ from true to false
