It Detected Your Proxy Server Not the Website Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The description says: "Unlike related extensions ShowIP and SixOrNot, this shows the actual remote addresses for each connection, rather than a DNS lookup on the page's domain name."

But unfortunately, ShowIP is accurate in that it shows the IP address of the website you are visiting. While IPvFox on the other hand shows the IP address of the Proxy server you are using _not_ the website.

I'm filing it as a bug report as well, see below:

Proxy Server Getting Detected Instead

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Install a local proxy
2. Setup your browser to use your proxy
3. Refresh/Visit a website

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The extension should be showing the IP addresses of the site. But instead, it is showing the local proxy's IP address.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

Please provide any additional information below.


Other than that, the addon is great if you don't use a proxy of your own. Until it's updated, I'm giving the addon 3/5 stars. Once the new version is up, then that's a full 5/5 stars. (And I hope something can be done.)

Keep it up, you're almost there.

IPvFoo is also suffering from the same problem, I already filed it as a bug over there.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

It's the same situation as with IPvFoo -- Firefox makes the connection to the proxy server, so that's the "remote address for the connection", and the one that gets reported.

I'm not sure what I can do about it, since Firefox can't get at the IP the proxy used.

(If you want to respond, I'll be watching the IPvFoo bug report, and there's also a bug tracker for IPvFox at Github.)
