Great extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can be improved by graying out the plug icon when no proxy is selected. If a proxy has no label then by default you can display the IP number instead of pop error asking the user to write something there.

How I can add user & password protected proxy? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This plugin works perfect with plain proxy. Is there a way to use user & password protected proxy without typing user & password each time?

Please solve the problem with the recent Nightly builds. There are double labels. (Or how can I remove one of them from inside the XPI?)

I don't understand your report:
"add" button open an empty form that you have to fill with your proxy info.
Could you please explain the issue by email? (michele dot pezza at gmail dot com)

Works great, only some minor bugs using Firefox 21 under OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion):

- When changing configuration via the toolbar button, the config window can not be closed (need to close firefox)
- When switching to a different proxy, the previously used proxy stays checked in the toolbar's context menu
- In the German translation the entries for automatic configuration and configuration via specified URL seem to be swapped

Efficient, simple, excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension adds a toolbar button that leads to a small menu for easy switching and configuring the used proxy. Very nicely done, easy to use and very useful!

PROXY LISTS AND IMPORTANT PROXY BASICS Rated 5 out of 5 stars

PROXY LISTS AND IMPORTANT PROXY BASICS

**** TYPES OF PROXIES

It is also important to note that :

-- Not all proxies are the same -- in regards to your privacy.

There is MORE THAN ONE KIND OF PROXY.

A "transparent" proxy (very common) will send your original IP address in the HTTP header so a well made site can still grab your IP address. It will still manage to stop most site blocking actions.

-- FOR REAL PRIVACY

You really want at least an ANONYMOUS proxy. With one of these the site you are reaching will know you are using a proxy, but not know your real IP address.

Better yet, use a HIGH ANONYMITY proxy or a DISTORTING PROXY so that servers and web sites can't tell you are even using a proxy.

**** PROXY LISTS

The add-on works great, however as I said there are no preset proxies included in the install or any references to lists of them (maintained lists are far more rare than zombie / abandoned web pages)

After MUCH web searching and testing, I found that nearly all lists consist of proxies that are no longer there, and private proxies you can't use for free.

More searching revealed a few useful sites which *ARE* maintained (unlike those thousands of out of date proxy lists). Mind you not all of the ones on these lists will work or be good as they are not tested as often as they ought to be (they need a simple PERL script that sets proxy details and tries to access a page). Also some of the listed proxies will not work all of the time. Some are also slower than others. TRhese ones at least attempt to be more up to date; although I found that in practice about 2 out of 3 listed proxies on these GOOD sites still don't work - which is far better than 1 out of 20 (or worse) which is what I got from most of the lists I have found.

Great But Help?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello, I'm rating 5 stars because i used your addon before, it worked great, greatest in the all proxy addons for firefox. Anyways recently I formatted my computer and now I installed firefox and your app, it gives me a problem. The problem is, under "Manage Proxies" when I click on Add, the Proxy Info box appears but the box is too small, just flat so I can't see any options and set anything.. The box is not resizeable so I can't make it larger to see the options. I tried re installing firefox and the addon, not worked... Please help??

Works for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very efficient way of managing proxy servers on my firefox.
Just one suggestion though, to get to the dialog window to add a proxy takes three mouse clicks; Mabey you can add a shortcut like "right click on Proxy Selector icon on addon bar to quickly add a proxy"
