    Most sites I can log onto & navigate OK using Tor / Privoxy & Firefox (have the Vidalia bundle). There's one particular site that will load OK & even login w/ user name & PW. It does say browser needs Script (I believe it means Java script, because when i used to access the same site before using Tor, had to enable Java Script). Problem is once logged in (using Tor) there are a bunch of icon links. Clicking on them does nothing, w/ or w/o Java or Java Script enabled in FF while using Tor. I even tried logging onto it w/ IE7 & Tor enabled (I know, not really secure) but just wanted to see. Same thing - clicking on the icon links does nothing. Any ideas? Thanks. Incidentally, I couldn't make paragraphs when creating this post. Is there a forum that deals exclusively w/ Tor, here or elsewhere?

    Difficult to offer specific advice without a site URL to check. Most likely the problem is either Javascript or the icons triggering popup windows which are then blocked by a web filter or popup stopper. Are you using anything aside from Privoxy and Firefox along with Tor?
