It's simple! It doesnt query me "access to all pages' data" as other proxy-switchers. It works with socks :)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If the proxy status is off, it should turn to "on" automatically when a proxy is selected . Instead of turn the status to on manually , so convenient, reduce two mouse click. But just keep the "off" state(use the broswer's setting)-- when not using the proxy.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2017.480). 

When activating another configuration, the button "Switich on" had to be clicked additionally. This has been changed in the version 2017.482

Due to the not yet complete previous range of functions, the usefulness of this keyword "direct" is limited. In the new version, this keyword is now named "active". This better describes the functionality.

Please note, due to the many changes made in Firefox, the MM3-ProxySwitch also had to be redeveloped. The previous scope of functions could not be reached yet and the documentation is also not completely adapted yet.

Excelente, until last week.
Same commentaries than other users. I copy it from other:
---
I love this extension for years for its simple and convenient usage at all aspects (GUI, configure syntax, etc), comparing to other similar extensions. However, for the beta version 2017.461 which is migrating to WebExtension technology, is not as convenient as before (the one using XUL).
1. In before if I want to switch off or switch on the proxy, simply clicking the extension button once is enough. Now it requires two clicks - click once to drop down the menu, then click once to select the menu entry of switch on/off.
2. In before, there was a down side triangle which will drop down the candidate proxies for selection once clicked. If I select one pre-defined proxy, the proxy is selected **and switched on automatically**. Now in beta version, selecting proxy and switching on/off are separated operations. I need one more click if switching from proxy-off mode to with-one-proxy mode.
3. the icon/button in the toolbar is not as bright as before when proxy is switched on, that is confusing of whether the proxy is on or off.
In one word, I prefer the old way to interact with MM3 Proxy Switch. I am not sure if current behavior is due to the WebExtension technology. However, if possible, I wan to see my favorite extension can have the same way of interacting with end user as before, which is more convenient, I think.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2017.461). 

From Firefox 57, the previously used native interface (XUL) has been omitted, this caused a complete reprogramming with the new interface WebExtension of Firefox. This interface does not yet contain all previous functions. That's why unfortunately many details had to be changed.

The previously used two-part switch with a one-click handling was possible, unfortunately no longer exists. That's why two clicks are needed now.

The default theme has been changed from a light to a dark background. With a dark background, the MM3-Icon (button) is not clearly visible. This has been changed in the new version.

any plans to make it a web extension? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

the best addon of the proxy type, I have tried them all, the ones that are close to this one are HUGE in size, this one is powerful, simple, small, and customizable for my needs. I hope you dont abandone it with all the webextensions fuzz

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2016). 

MM3-ProxySwith now available with Web Extionsion

The removal of the used native interface (XUL) in Firefox 57
required a reprogramming with new interface WebExtension.

No e10s support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful and convenient tool, but it doesn't support the modern firefox feature -- multi-process usage to effectively distribute the load.

still the best and the simplest Rated 5 out of 5 stars

if a gui for input proxy setting would be perfect.

Best by far Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Comparing with the well-known competior it wins for me.
It has no artificial limitations for local IPs/domain names, which are especially useful for SeaMonkey (no proxy for mail servers).

The config is the quickest and easiest, all in one window.
IMO monospaced font will do better.

It lacks proxy select based on URLs, but this feature is insecure so I don't use it.

I'd preferred more flashy icon in order to see more easily if it enabled, but it can be modded by user.

I've been using this addon for many years and the plain-text configuration is simpler by far than that of any dialog-driven proxy addons. However I now need glob-based url matching and am at a crossroads.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2013.92.1-signed). 

Many thanks for very good assessment.

Should different proxys be used according to the url?
Please, describe your requirement more exactly, so that we can check the realisation.

Works very well in Firefox 17 and lower, but is completely broken in Firefox 18; not any automated switching method works any longer, so the last entry is always selected. This could be because proxy handling was changed in Firefox 18.

Many thanks for your feedback

We tested with:

- Windows 7
- Firefox 18beta1 (default theme)
- MM3-ProxySwitch 2012

It works fine.

Works like a charm but update description! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like an absolute charm as long as you give yourself no more than 5 minutes to learn the script, which I know most of you will find an absolute age, impatient, with your trousers round your ankles...

But, author, PLEASE update your title and description - searching for "firefox proxy" this never turns up in the results and it should. One never remembers the thoroughly unimaginative name "MM3-ProxySwitch".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2012.1-signed). 

Many thanks for your excellent assessment and your suggestion on a more meaningful name.

We have adapted the description on your note.
The descriptive name Proxy Switch is found in the add-ons.

its steal your proxys and post them somewhere!!!!

Nice Proxy Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It´s not bad but I think it is too complicated to configure it.
Also I didn´t get it to work right.
So for now only 3 /5 Stars.
Edit:
I got it working now,some other proxy add-ons negated its effect...
Anyway I like how easy it is to change the settings and also that you can change the homepage.
Tested on Win7 / FF15 Beta 5

Was Great, Now Not Working ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've used this for a long time, but I can't save the configuration on either Ubuntu 11.10 (as the previous reviewer mentioned) nor on OS/X (10.7.2). (4 stars until it gets fixed ...)

It can't save config on Ubuntu 11.10's Firefox, so it can't work.

works perfectly Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Use it to switch between work LAN proxy and 3G connection (no proxy).
Works brilliantly, great time-saver.

Is the first fully functional ProxySwitch for use with Firefox 4.0

noProxy option, loads to firefox network settings only on selecting profile in combo. If you edit the settings and use the icon to switch, wont update firefox network settings.
