I'm running Privoxy 3.0.19 on Xubuntu 12.04 64-bit and from time to time I get this error message when trying to access certain webpages. It's happening a little less than half the time. For example, when I try to access http://www.thetangledweb.net I get this error message every time. It just started happening this afternoon. Earlier today I was able to access the website just fine but now, for whatever reason, I'm getting this error message. I've looked in the log file but it doesn't show anything regarding this particular website. I'm not sure what else to do. Any thoughts or ideas? Thank you.

Odd thing I found out tonight. I was playing around with Cairo-Dock and you can add wesites to your desktop. The are called weblets. Well, when I added thetangledweb.net to my desktop as a weblet, it let me go to the webpage without any problems. The only issue is that I have limited visibility of the webpage. –  Jason Smith Aug 28 '13 at 2:54
Ditched Privoxy and decided to go with Polipo. Privoxy was not only giving me a lot of errors but it was also slowing my web browsing down a lot. Polipo seems to be working much better for me. –  Jason Smith Aug 29 '13 at 19:57
