It is an important difference - it breaks some sites, and some sites that don't want to allow proxy connections won't work. If you want a real security and real reliability - you have to use a system-wide VPN (split tunneling feature don't work).
Second, It is rather buggy and lacks in features. Support is utterly useless! The only response you'll get is "sorry, we can't fix it." I've already tried to resolve issues listed here.
After some time, connection becomes permanent, and attempts to disconnect or change proxy are ignored (you'll see it disconnecting/reconnecting in UI but the actual IP won't change until you restart Firefox). Bypass proxy list is extremely inconvenient to use. You need to reconnect after changing the list (and reconnect is broken), and for some sites it does not work. Also, format is unclear.
And if you want to buy a subscription - wait for sales, prices are quite high, but they regularly drop them massively (sometimes it is a 90% sale).

- by Firefox user 14619459, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5When using VPNs, I find my computer is confused. I get pages in the language of the country I have selected, and when I order something, the currency of the country I selected is on the screen. I have to turn off the VPN in order to get to the correct currency. I also don't like getting pop-up ads in another language. It would be nice to have a choice to use my own country, but have the proxy address constantly moving around this country.
