View Full Version : [ubuntu] Connecting via proxy

March 8th, 2009, 08:48 AM
Is it possible to have a firefox addon or something that allows me to connect to a certain website through a proxy, leaving every other website connecting normally? I put emphasis on "certain" due to the fact that I know I can make firefox connect completely through a proxy, but I just want it to run on one site.

I was afraid some one would mention that. I actually tried that last night, but had absolutely no idea how to use it. :x

I've got it configured for tor so I can access .onion domains, it's not too hard to set up.
ctrl+F2 = options, not hard.
Add New Proxy
Name isn't all that important, but you will need one.
Hit proxy details tab
Choose automatic, or manual, fill in details needed.
Click URL Patterns Proxy.
Add New Pattern
Not hard to work out
Click OK on everything
Test it out.
Is that good enough, or do you want images? :p

I did that, but I went to 'manual' and tried entering a proxy myself. It didn't work (Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections), however, instead of just saying that on the website I wanted the proxy to work on, I went on this page and reloaded and it said that as well.

Would it not do that if the proxy had worked? Also, where do you get your proxies from, every time I try it says connection refused.
