Tor is not the same as the Tor Browser Bundle.

Performing yum install tor only installs the Tor client, which can connect to the Tor network but nothing else.

The Tor Project recommends downloading the Tor Browser Bundle from their website. This bundles the Tor client with a modified Firefox browser.

If you want to stick with the stand-alone Tor client, you can also configure your regular Firefox to use the Tor SOCKS proxy (localhost on port 9050). However, the Tor Project recommend that you browse the Internet only with the Tor Browser Bundle, since Firefox may leak data and reduce your anonymity.

Can I set up a SOCKS proxy (localhost:9050) for my system (network settings) in order to torrify my entire network traffic? Do I have to manually start/stop tor (service tor start and service tor stop)? I already have Tor Browser Bundle installed - does that also mean I should have a working Tor client?
