I did just that… no connection here.
In step 6 electrum version 4.2.2 gives the option to “use Tor proxy 9150”. I’ve tried both options and it doesn’t work.

Connecting via the local network doesn’t work. Electrum has no option to switch off SSL and won’t connect to the server.

I’m seeing the same problem, not even sure where to get the tor address from now, settings or the connect button?

Used to work with me as well.

I was able to get it working again after I updated Umbrel.

The Tor address that you’re putting into the Electrum settings, where do you get this Tor address from? Umbrel settings or the Connect button in the Bitcoin “app”?
