Use i2p and Tor on the same Fennec browser?

by /u/Kebab0621 · 1 votes · 2 months ago


Using grapheneOS, is there a way to use i2p and Tor on the same fennec (or another) browser? I'm using InviZible to connect to Tor and i2p. I mostly use i2p but some sites like TMG only have a tor option and I can't seem to open Tor sites on Fennec when I'm using i2p?

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

In general it is safer to use dedicated browsers for each network. If using mobile, i suggest downloading Lightening browser for I2P.

BTW using Fennec to access Tor increases the uniqueness of your fingerprint and can decrease your anonymity.

thanks for the tip, Ill do that!

it is already configured to use I2P. You just select the I2P proxy in the settings. Easy peasy

do you have a browser recommendation for Tor?

/u/dont_be_an_eep · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

is there some reason you don't want to use the Tor Browser itself? it is available on FDroid and as an APK. Just make sure to only download the APK from the official Tor Project website and to verify the signature.

I've started using Tor browser. tbh Graphene wasnt picking up lightening for i2p links, so im using Vanadium for clearnet, fennec for i2p only and tor browser for well tor lol. thanks for all your advice.

hello, i think i understand what you are asking about... that invizible app is pretty interesting. I had never heard of it until I read your post, so i downloaded it and gave it a shot. Works pretty well but i am (personally) sketched about putting that many eggs in one basket. But anyways, if you go to the settings drop down on the top left and access i2p settings, then scroll down to the HTTP proxy section, click the tab that turns the HTTP outproxy on, then right under that click on the HTTP outproxy address option. change it from "http://false.i2p" to: "http://purokishi.i2p" without the quotes of course. your i2p will reconnect upon going back to the main screen. this will improve your general performance AND allow you to access i2p AND onion links side-by-side on the same browser, during the same session. you can even click a onion link on a eep site and itll open in a separate window. Additionally, you have the option the use firefox nightly to run all this. its the only mobile, gecko based browser i know of that you can access about:config on. I tested all this before writing this so i know it works. have fun.

if you config firefox nightly for this please dont use it for anything else (clearnet) and also the about:config doesnt save changes between sessions. so the first thing you will need to do everytime you start is type "java" in the about:config search and change its value to false, kind of annoying but waaaaay better than using anything else ive come across in a mobile sit. in my opinion. ive looked for reasons to not use this set up and have not found any yet and def welcome any conflicting opinions

I know this was for the tor browser but it might also apply to firefox for the java issue??

i am referring to this part "user_pref("javascript.enabled", false);" only

i dont understand your post tbh....

sorry i forgot to post this link my bad.


hope it makes more sense now

okay, and ty for elaborating. you are thinking "tor browser" still, if im not mistaken.... tor browser is cool but i personally only use it as a backup. and even then i isolate it so that no update can potentially contaminate it. this post is also geared toward mobile operations, unless im mistaken. so hopefully we can narrow down from there. in my world there is no java issue with firefox, mobile or otherwise...."about:config" is your friend

/u/NorthOfTheNeXus · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

tor browser is firefox so most of that post will still apply.. well thats my thinking i dont have a mobile phone to test if it would, it was just a idea to try and help with persistent settings and saving settings between sessions.

/u/wholesomeknot · 1 votes · 2 months ago · Link

okay, yeah i honestly dont know then..... i run onions through several different browsers on a pc os/mobile. i guess im out of touch if the about config settings arent sticking from session to session on tor browser. look up the "gecko" fork sometime. good read.
