To cut a long story short after having removed TorButton, NoScript, and
HTTPS-Everywhere and therefore leaving just Tor I still cannot get Twitter
to work from Gmail. I am using Firefox.
The Twitter icon and drop-down box partially loads (but not as normal when
I am not using Tor). Clicking on it appears to load some Twitter functions
e.g. "transfering data from twittergadget.appspot.com" but Twitter does not
load. Eventually all loading messages just stop and the screen stays as Gmail.
The only about:config entry about Twitter is
extensions.https_everywhere.Twitter which is presumably irrelevant if I
have removed HTTPS-Everywhere.
Can anyone suggest what modifications are needed to achieve a workaround or
if what I am trying to do is not viable.
