FoxyProxy Basic Version History

46 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 1.8.3 659.5 kB Works with Firefox 3.1b3 - 4.0b9pre, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1b2, Thunderbird 3.0a1pre - 3.3a2pre

Firefox 4: fixed translucent context-menus.
Added "Use Selected For All URLs" proxy context-menu item. Requested here.

Version 1.8.2 658.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.1b3 - 4.0b8pre, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1b2, Thunderbird 3.0a1pre - 3.3a2pre

Improved support for Firefox 4 beta. Known bug: context-menus are translucent on Windows 7.
Fix for Tools menu indent problem on Windows - thanks Nils Maier of DownThemAll!
Changing statusbar default display. Previously, the statusbar displayed (by default) "FoxyProxy: " as well as the FoxyProxy icon. Since color-per-proxy was introduced, it doesn't make much sense to keep the "FoxyProxy: " text there by default. Mode can be inferred from icon color. Moreover, many addons are trying to minimize their statusbar footprint these days. It makes sense to remove this default option. The new default is to display just the FoxyProxy icon. You can restore the text by clicking Ctrl+F2 then Global Settings tab-> Indicators->Show mode (text) on statusbar. This does not affect upgraded installations; only new installations.
Changed references of foxyproxy.mozdev.org to getfoxyproxy.org
Locale updates
Removed hyperlink around Jesper Hansen's name in the About window since his website appears to be gone

Version 1.8.1 650.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.1b3 - 4.0b4, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1b1, Thunderbird 3.0a1pre - 3.3a1pre

Fixed import/export settings dialog--previously it always said "import" even when doing an export
Locale updates

Version 1.8 650.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.1b3 - 4.0b5pre, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1b1, Thunderbird 3.0a1pre - 3.2a1pre

Added import/export of settings to FoxyProxy's File menu. Requested here.
Fixed spacing issue on Windows whereby images in buttons and tabs were crammed too close to their button/tab text
Locale updates, including the newly added Latvian translation
Removed extraneous stdout messages that got included in 2.21.3 (or so)
Version bumps; officially dropping support for Firefox 3.0.x -- I'll see if I can bring it back later. The previous FoxyProxy BAsic release (1.7.4) doesn't work with Firefox 3.0 already due to the Firefox 4.0 porting efforts. Unfortunately, that release wasn't labeled as such so Firefox 3.0 users were automatically upgraded.

In foxyproxy.xml, change the new "disableOnBadPAC" attribute from its default of "true" to "false". This can be set on a per-proxy basis so you will see "disableOnBadPAC" listed more than once.

Version 1.4 592.9 kB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.7a1pre, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1a1pre, Thunderbird 3.0a1pre - 3.1a1pre

  • DNS "leak" fix for SOCKS proxies. See the new checkbox in Proxy Settings: "Perform remote DNS lookups
    on hostnames loading through this proxy". This checkbox is now checked by default for new SOCKS proxies.

  • Menu colors (statusbar, toolbar, context-menu) now match customized proxy color

  • Minor Add/Edit Proxy dialog bug fix

  • Animated FoxyProxy icon in About box (Thanks, Jesper!)

  • McAfee Site Advisor support. Discussed here.

  • Work towards re-enable proxies disabled by missing PAC but feature is not yet complete.

  • Width and height of main options dialog and proxy settings dialog remembered between opening/closing

  • Fixed bug which prevented the proper display of an error message to the user if he was using a PAC with a syntax error or other problems.
    Discussed here.

  • Proxy DNS column added to Proxies list in the main window and ChooseProxy window (displayed with Alt+F3)

  • Default display columns for new installations is now:
    Proxy list:
    • Enabled

    • Color

    • Proxy Name

    • Proxy Notes

    All other columns are still available but must be enabled explicitly. The point is to enable less clutter
    by hiding by default lesser-important columns.

  • Tor wizard now uses remote DNS lookup by default instead of prompting the user

Version 1.3.1 592.9 kB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.7a1pre, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1a1pre, Thunderbird 3.0a1pre - 3.1a1pre

  • Fix for French which caused French installations of 1.3 to completely break

  • Locale updates


Repeating 1.3 release notes since 1.3 was not made available for more than a couple of hours
  • DNS lookups now fixed! Removed the Global Setting "Use SOCKS proxy for DNS lookups" and replaced it with
    a "Use this proxy for all DNS lookups" checkbox on each Proxy Settings dialog. However, only one proxy can be
    chosen for DNS lookups amongst all proxies. This is a Firefox limitation. See screenshot here
    and here.

  • Fixed "Cycle Through Modes" bug as described here.

  • Fixed text-wrapping when resizing the "Choose Proxy" dialog (initiated from the Alt+F3 "QuickProxy" shortcut)

  • Proxy color now displayed when pressing the Alt+F3 "QuickProxy" shortcut

  • Fixed bug whereby some alert boxes weren't properly parented/owned. This led to some alerts not being properly modal
    with respect to the window/dialog that issued the alert.

  • Fixed various minor bugs with the Tor Wizard; also removed a step in the wizard

  • Locale upates

  • Vietnamese translation -- thanks loveleeyounga!

  • fr-FR locale changed to fr per BabelZilla

Version 1.2 578.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.0a1 - 3.7a1pre, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1a1pre, Thunderbird 3.0a1pre - 3.1a1pre

* icons for buttons and tabs
* New, better colorpicker for selecting color-per-proxy -- Thanks, Jesper Hansen!
* Color now displayed in FoxyProxy Options dialog as requested here: http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/drupal/content/color-icon-status-bar#comment-2849
* Narrowed CSS specificity for FoxyProxy's tree styling to prevent interference with
addons such as FindInTabs (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8078). This also fixes the long-standing
bug in some Firefox versions whereby the Firefox addressbar/awesomebar shows blank lines when autosuggesting websites.
* Removed useless "mode" column in options dialog tree view
* New proxy names default to host/ip address (if one was entered), otherwise they default back to the original "New Proxy" name. Requested here:
http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/drupal/content/default-nameip-comment-hint
* Tooltips for proxies, when listed in any menu, show the proxy notes field (used to replicate the proxy name). Requested here:
http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/drupal/content/default-nameip-comment-hint
* better debugging for failed proxy filtering (as requested somewhere in the forums)
* differentiation between FoxyProxy Basic and FoxyProxy Plus in labels within the application. Previously, such labels just said "FoxyProxy" instead of "FoxyProxy Basic" or "FoxyProxy Standard". This makes it clearer to the user which edition he's using, hopefully making support easier.
* Support for closing FoxyProxy dialogs/windows on OS/X with Command-W
* removed extraneous dump() statements
* better socks dns handling; still needs work
* Conditional builds for FoxyProxy Basic
* locale updates
* removed id-ID and mk-MK locales since they've been empty for ages
