It does, thank you.
But now I have another one. I have configured the proxy settings to
connect though Tor (9150). I do not open the Tor browser. I open uTox or
qTox and in 5 seconds I see I am online (green). How is that possible?
It should stay grey, shoudn't it?

And, is there any chat group on Tox itself for support? Kind of IRC...
