No

Privoxy working OK but I get a "Fatal Error cannot bind to 127.0.0.1:8118"
Win 8.1 with all updates.
I can load Config.Privoxy.org to get all config info but cannot launch the Privoxy program.
FireFox v 25 Manual config of proxy: 127.0.0.1 on port 8118
Nothing else running on port.
I have 2 Win8.1 PCs both exhibiting same behavior.
Attached error msg screen print
Privoxy is filtering ads properly so this error is confusing.

    If you can use config.privoxy.org as expected, it means Privoxy is already running and there's no need to launch it again.

    How did you verify that nothing else is bound to Privoxy's listening address?
