I’m using Firefox with a Proxy configured on Whonix Workstation. I am aware of a difference between anonymity and pseudonymity.
Today I noticed a strange behavior. While Whonixcheck was saying that a tor connection could not be established, I was able to connect to the Internet using Firefox. On the Gateway there was a problem with clock settings. I expected that there would be no connection. Tor browser could not connect to the Internet. All applications didn’t have a connection (time out). All but Firefox with a proxy.
So, I wanted to ask how it’s possible? I use an HTTP and SSL proxy address with a port 9878 and a SOCKS v5 host with a port 19878. Was my traffic torrified before proxy?
Thank you in advance!
