I got this add on last yr. I am SURE that when I first got it I would go to a site and it would not allow me in, I would then click the proxmate icon, and it would work next time I load page. But now when I do it I get this "you have not added packages" message. So, I tried it, I did download a package.. but I got no results. And the next time i went to use it I got the same no packages notice. The reason I say I MAY have lost my mind, is I did try Hola, at some point. And either Hola or Proxmate would ask me what country I wanted to appear to be in after I clicked button. And BOTH worked well for a long while. But one day I had neither.
I intentionally do not allow Firefox to auto update because of the fact it DOES disable some add ons. So I know it was not an update. (also I use Mozyback and ALWAYS make a couple of good backups of Firefox before i get the updates, so I can rollback should the update suck. Like the one that took my add on bar AND all the icons that went in it!)
However, Hola went away too. I lost it I suppose in a Firefox update... and next time i downloaded it, I got a whole browser, and it doesnt work at all. So either firefox has changed something or Proxmate changed something, but at this point both Hola and proxmate have ecome useless to me... SAD but true. I would love ot have this work. Without all this download packages stuff. I dont just browse the packages pages.... Developer... if iAM losing my mind PLEASE feel free to comment and let me know... (you wouldn't be the first to do so!)
