Working as intended Rated 5 out of 5 stars
While the UI is a bit lacking, it does what it claims to do: switching proxy with just a click. For utility-type addon, simple is best.
everything ist fine Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It works well and pretty fast. Great work.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Not working, Help? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hello, when I click "Turn Proxy On" it says "Can't connect to MySQL server on 'mysql.proxyipchecker.com' (111)" How does one solve this problem?
Edit - Emailed zzenitt my problem and he fixed in 1-2 days. It is now working. Great product for being free. If you're looking to support someone, support this guy!

Easy one-click access, but rather slow. Free! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I needed access to my own blog because one of my CDN vendors BANNED ME from MY OWN SITE :) This worked and will work for you, but it is rather slow on anything slightly complex like logins. But it works and is free so it can help you until you find a better solution.
has it stopped working again? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Has this addon stopped working again or it me? One of the best addons for firefox but the last few days I cant get it working. Is there something wrong with the server?
It's up and running again. One of the best addons I have used
works but net speed slows down Rated 4 out of 5 stars
But generally good addon.
Awesome + a little question Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It was very useful for me in the last days, did work that I otherwise needed about 100 days or more. Only today after turned it off it didn't return my default proxy settings (system). After turned it off it show No Proxy now. No matter how much I return settings to System Detected after FF restart it is again No Proxy. Maybe there was something in System Detected settings which is missing now so it always returns to No Proxy.
PS. I succeeded to return settings. The addon works flowlessly by now only the change of the settings when addon turned off confused me.
Good to know! Thanks for the update.
Is good to know that the problem is solved!

Broken or Disabled? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Haven't been able to use proxy since Firefox update, the Proxy IP when on is just a blank little square.
The broken (google/password) proxies aren't too bad as it's very easy to change proxies but sometimes you randomly get bad proxies so many times in a row it's rageworthy.
What I'd really like to see is the ability to keep a proxy: e.g. 22.214.171.124 works great, I'd like to be able to pin it so that when I turn proxy off and back on I stay with 126.96.36.199 again. I hate losing a good working proxy because it's all random.
Otherwise great product, can't wait til it's fixed.
It's fully working again
Hi, thanks for your review.
One Click Proxy addon is fully working again. A few weeks ago there was a problem in a server that prevented the addon to fully work.
Sure, why not. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Sometimes Google and Captchas won't work,
188.8.131.52 works. Sometimes the proxy IP will ask for a username and password to use it.
There is an ad. It is located in the drop-down menu when you click the button, you can even see it in the screenshots on the add-on page :P. It's unobtrusive & easily ignored, but if you want to go all "FALSE ADVERTISING" and "BOYCOTT" then just don't use it.
As for the icon, it's almost invisible when off, and black & bold when on.
Thanks for your objective review.
You're right, we daily automatically check and add hundred of proxies, some of them doesn't work with Google and Captchas but usually with a few clicks in reload you can find a good one for that too.
Thanks for use it and don't hesitate to write me to the support email if you need help with something related with the addon or have any comment or suggestion.
False advertisement Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Firstly, it does have ads.
Secondly, it doesn't work.
Finally, the little difference of colour between active and inactive makes it hard to see when it's active/inactive, particularly in dark background.
You're all wrong
Firstly, it doesn't have proxy ads. The proxies doesn't have ads, doesn't add obtrusive ads in every page you visit. It has only one fixed ad, not in web content, fixed under the buttons to activate and deactivate it.
Secondly, it does work. It works every day for thousands of users. If it doesn't work for you due to a particular problem with you or your computer, there you have the support email, I helped a lot of users to make the addon work when particular issues prevented to work it by default. If you learn to kindly ask, you're going to have better results.
Finally, the color change from red to green, if that is little difference to you, please tell me what is it. Moreover, not only color changes indicates you when the proxy is on or off. When is on, the IP of the proxy is shown in big numbers. And when is off, "Proxy is Off" is showed in the same place where the IP was.
Looks like this review is fully wrong, not for this addon, nothing coincides. If I don't get further response from you, I'm going to eliminate it because is fully wrong, not for this addon. You're fully wrong.
If you have a support request, kindly use the email and I will try to help you. Only if your vocabulary is correct and kind, I only answer to educated persons. I hope you learn something.
questions Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hi.this looks great,but I have several questions:does changing my proxy on FF affect other browsers?can I revert back to my original proxy?sorry if these questions look stupid,I am new to such a things. :)
Your questions are very good questions. But it's better to write me an email to email@example.com to ask things like this.
The changes affects only Firefox, not other browsers.
When you click on the 'Turn Proxy Off' button in the addon, your proxy settings revert to original.
Any other question feel free to write me to the email.

In a word BRILLIANT.
Thanks for the new update guys now working in newer versions of Firefox (including dev edition).
Thanks a lot!
Thanks mate! Comments like yours worth a lot for me. If in the future you have any problem with the addon or you have any feedback or suggestion, feel free to contact me at the support email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Works as advertised Rated 4 out of 5 stars
But it's seriously useless for my purpose.
I needed a proxy which allows https ssl tunnels and is located in the US. Only about half of the proxies supported https and maybe every fifth was in the US (not exact values, I only cycled through 15 servers or something).
If this addon supported only selecting https proxies and selecting regions for the proxies it would be perfect (both shouldn't be too hard, it could check both right from the browser or the proxy list could start adding that information or if it's not your proxy list you could add a server between the proxy list and the addon which adds that information).
Edit: Seems the onyl way I can answer: Thank you! I'll check back in some time.
Working on it
First of all, thanks a lot for your feedback.
You're right, is not too hard what you ask. Right now I'm thinking if modifying this addon to for example, be able to choose https only, or create a new one with that and other filtering options.
In some weeks some of that options is going to be done. Feel free to check my addons in some time to see if there's something new that can help you.
Doesn't work in Firefox 40 (Edit: the new version works fine!) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Solved in version 1.0.0

Although I do not know to what degree privacy actually extends server-side (with respect to generated IPs, which are more than likely logged, somewhere), this is possibly the most user-friendly and effective proxy add-on I've seen.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.56.1-signed).
how to ? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
when you find a working one it does what it says perfectly but it takes too long switching proxy ip servers to find a good one , most of them dont connect so maybe a way to store/save the good ones could be useful.
whatever among the proxy addons is the most effective and user friendly , i suggest yoy to give it a try ( south american proxies work better ) cheers

it works great , thanx guys!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.56.1-signed).
