    This is absurd.
    The above tutorial voids the very use of TOR browser ==== Privacy.

    Flash leaks your IP address all over the place.

    haha, funny tut.

    TorBrowser\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\plugins this path is nowhere found… my portable copy is on desktop but i dont see above path.

    OP is right, in newer Tor releases you need to create the folder.
    For Tor 3.6.2 just go into “\Tor Browser\Data\Browser”, create a folder named “plugins” and drop the Adobe Flash .dll there.

    The only question is, how will the Flash plug-in affect the security of the TorBrowser? Since Adobe’s stuff, especially the flash player is not like a security hole on a system but like a club that knocks out the gatekeeper. 😀 I mean, flash player is a real unsecured application, and adding such thing to a secured software, may put the users anonymity, and security on stake. So again. How will this method affect the security of TorBrowser?
