    when you're using tor can the node operators see ur ip address?
    if not who can?

    the node operators don't see it, but anybody can who has enforcement powers: interpol, fbi etc.

    if you're planning to do something shady, then just don't do it

    your packets are encrypted until they reach the exit node, nobody can see your ip address, the exit node will see the sites you visit and even your passwords, posts etc. if the site is not encrypted, the visited sites will see the exit node's ip address

    if you use a simple http connection, the exit nodes can read your packets with wireshark or other tools, there are middle man and statistical attacks too, but difficult to deploy, the feds probably use it :)
    make sure you disable javascript in firefox options and block all scripts with noscript, the visited site maybe will see your real ip if you use javascript, you are safe if you use it with caution, just think about all the sht that you can find in torland :p

    with some js twists they can reveal it and not just your ip, with a simple js command the time on your pc can be captured and much much more
    disable javascript! :D

    if you don't do it you're probably gonna leak a wealth of info you don't really want to give away if privacy is your main concern... With https everywhere a few attacks on tor, as noted above, while possible are fairly "complicated" to accomplish in real life and for the most part not in your average skid skillset...
