About the Private Tabs with Tor category


Private tabs now have the option to send information over the Tor network.

If you notice issues specifically related to the use of Tor in private tabs, this is the right place to ask for help.

Please be sure to include your Brave version (about:brave page info), OS, and perhaps what site you were trying to use (if a specific site isn’t working, but others appear to be working fine).


No issues but just to let you know that today was the first time my attempts to open a Private TOR tab worked.

Every prior attempt had generated an error message.

Info on ‘Private Tab With TOR’ webpage appears to suggest that it still isn’t as secure as using TOR browser. Is that the intended message?


Just FYI: My prior message (4 days ago) was posted on the only day the feature has worked so far. Has not been working since.

If you open a private tab in Tor, the browser crashes when you type in a string. There are still problems when pinning tabs. For example, when you close pinned tabs, after you restart the browser, they are active again. So not with all sites, but with certain. You need to detach to close at all. Still there are problems with downloading webm download button does not work… Well, just the browser sometimes crashes for no reason, mostly when switching to what some sites from Twitter.
