Before running makepkg, you must do this (as normal user):

$ gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys torbrowser@torproject.org

If you want to update tor-browser from AUR without AUR helpers you can run in a terminal:

$ tor-browser -u

Installed from AUR; error at verifying PGP key.

Used @grufo's command, worked straight away.

@grufo you are right, that's easier.

For those who don't want to copy links: Create the file ~/.local/share/applications/tor-browser.desktop with this content:

[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Tor Browser (en-US) Exec=/usr/bin/tor-browser --allow-remote %u Icon=tor-browser Categories=Network; Comment=Anonymous browsing using Firefox and Tor

This overwrites the existing desktop-file and persists through updates.

Found it. I forgot my ~/bin/tor-browser script containing:

/usr/bin/tor-browser --allow-remote "$@"

Without --allow-remote, it works now.

@MrG0z, that doesn't happen to me, if that helps...

MrG0z commented on 2020-09-23 20:04

It's weird. Since the update to 10.0-1, starting "tor-browser" starts my usual Firefox version.

@craeckie

If --allow-remote is disabled by default there is a reason… Btw, you don't need to add --allow-remote to the script, you can pass any argument to it and they will be redirected to the browser.

PKGBUILD is broken

craeckie commented on 2020-07-20 16:51

@WhyNotHugo It's true, that opening links is a liability. But copy-pasting link doesn't change that even a bit. In the case of accidentially opening a link, most users will likely just use a normal browser, if "Tor doesn't work". In that case the actual IP is revealed, which imo is a much bigger liability.

Are there any other effects of enabling --allow-remote?

WhyNotHugo commented on 2020-07-01 16:32

That patch seems a bit of a security liability. If I click on a link on some desktop app (say, an IM client), it could trigger Tor to open that link.

That allows crossing my non-tor IP with my in-tor session.

I'd rather link had to by copy-pasted into Tor explicitly, TBH.

Hi, currently it's not possible for me to open links in the browser. After adding %u to the desktop file and --allow-remote to tor-browser.sh, it works.

Here's the patch:
