I connect to various wifi networks that require a login (or "accept terms"). I leave Browser un-torified so I can connect to the network, then use Orweb for everything else, and I proxy basically all my other applications through Orbot.

When I upgraded to 13.0.6, I had problems, and downgraded to 13.0.4a.

What happens in 13.0.6 is that when I move to a network that requires intervention, Orbot cannot work because it cannot reach any nodes, and Browser won't work, because it seems that Orbot won't let it connect unsupervised while it's disabled? I end up having to shut down Orbot, connect to the network, and then start Orbot up again. Although somtimes even that doesn't work and I have to disable Orbot and reboot.

Am I doing something wrong, or am I missing a setting that would change this behavior?

Just to be clear, you are using root+transparent proxying in "app" mode, and you are NOT enabling the stock Browser app to be proxied through Tor, via the Orbot app select list?

Yes. I am using root/superuser, transparent proxying in "app" mode, with most apps proxied via the Orbot select list.

Browser is NOT proxied, so I can respond to the local wifi AP challenge/auth page.
