Hi team,

I am using Privoxy 3.0.21 64 bits on a Macbook Air Lion 10.7.5

1) I installed Privoxy 3 weeks ago. Working fine.

2) I just did the Mac System Software Updates and rebooted the Macbook. Software installed was iPhoto updates from Apple. Cannot say what exactly.

3) I realized privoxy is not running as a service anymore, however I tried to start or restart the service but terminals gives this output:

cbgairmac:Privoxy CBG$ sudo ./startPrivoxy.sh
Password:
org.ijbswa.privoxy: Already loaded

4) Downloaded privoy 3.0.21 64 bit andt installed it again but doesnt work anymore.

? What is that?

    Hi there,

    So just to confirm, if you configure the Network Preference Pane to use 127.0.0.1:8118 as proxy then you find you cannot browse the internet at all, correct? What output do you get from the following command in Terminal:

    ps ax | grep privoxy

    ?

    Cheers,

    Ian

    Dear Lan,

    meanwhile the issue is fixed. I had to totally delete all files, including performing the uninstallation.

    But I dont think this is a permanent solution for customers.

    So, yes I can confirm to have entered loopback address in the system proxy settings of my mac.
    As I said. privoxy ran perfectly allright until I have performed the iPhoto update a copple of hours ago.

    Okay here is the output of ps ax | grep privoxy:

    cbgairmac:~ CBG$ ps ax | grep privoxy
    12548 ?? Rs 0:00.20 /usr/local/sbin/privoxy --no-daemon /usr/local/etc/privoxy/config
    12782 s002 R+ 0:00.00 grep privoxy
    cbgairmac:~ CBG$

    But this output is taken now after fixing the issue by newly installing privoxy.

    Glad you found yourself a solution!

    I'm afraid without more information from before you fixed it we'll not be able to generalise, but I suspect yours was an isolated case.

    Cheers,

    Ian
