I have a long-standing issue with forced onions. With both Qubes-os.org and Whonix.org as forced onions, occasionally a visit to Qubes is overridden and instead goes to whonix’s site, keeping the path intended for Qubes. Naturally, this results in a not found error. Not only that, it’s a privacy leak.
Most recently this happened when trying to create a custom rule for dev.sik5nlgfc5qylnnsr57qrbm64zbdx6t4lreyhpon3ychmxmiem7tioad.onion/ (Qubes OS developer documentation, which may or may not be served via onion) Goes straight to Whonix Onion. Custom rulesets had already been applied for Qubes-os.org and Whonix.org
In the past, searching Qubes with its site-internal DuckDuckGo and clicking a link to travel back to Qubes’ site resulted in a visit to Whonix’s page instead. Forced onion for DDG in this case.
I’m not sure why Whonix site takes priority in these cases, does anyone have any suggestions? Does this happen to anyone else?
Thanks in advance!
