All of our proxies support Firefox and will work.  There may be some extra setup required however.  If your proxies are configured with only IP Authentication then you can use the proxy settings already in Firefox.

If you have Username/Password authentication used then you must use a third party addon such as Foxyproxy ( ).  This is due to Firefox not supporting Username and Password.


Setup for Firefox (no FoxyProxy)

Open the settings menu and in the top right click on the search.  Then start typing in "Proxy" and in the results you will see "Network Settings".  Click on the "Settings" button for that.



On the popup you select "Manual Proxy Configuration" and enter your proxy server IP and port in the "SOCKS Host" field and select "SOCKS v5".  In the example below the proxy server IP is and the port for the proxy is 5013.

If you wish to use remote DNS select the "Proxy DNS when using SOCKS v5".  Then click "OK" and you will have the proxy working.



Setup for Firefox (with FoxyProxy)

Once FoxyProxy is installed click on the FoxyProxy icon in the top right menu bar and then click "Options".  It should look like the below



Click on "Add" in the top left.  On the new page enter any "Title" you wish as this will only be used to identify the proxy.  For the "Proxy Type" select "Socks5".  For "Proxy IP" set that to the Server IP.  Set the Port to the Port as indicated on our website.  If you have an username and password enter in those fields.

If you wish to have our server handle the DNS requests then make sure "Send DNS through SOCKS5 Proxy" is enabled on the left.

The below image has a proxy with a name of "Example proxy" and an IP:Port of and a username of TestUser/TestPassword.




Once you have the settings entered click "Save"

Now in the top right click on the FoxyProxy icon and then click on the name of the proxy you created.  That proxy is now active and will be used.
