Using a proxy can be useful in a variety of circumstances whether you want to protect your surfing habits or access content that's not available in your region.
However, finding a decent proxy often involves hunting high and low on the internet for one in the country you're looking for. FoxyProxy Extension removes this painstaking task by providing instant access to a huge number of proxies directly in Firefox. All you need to do is activate FoxyProxy Extension by clicking on it in your Firefox toolbar and you have instant access to a huge number of proxies from all around the World.
Not only is FoxyProxy Extension easy to use but it also offers a high degree of customization. For example, you can customize mouse clicks to activate it, make a quick list of regularly accessed proxies and add "patterns" according to how you want FoxyProxy Extension to behave with certain proxies. The one thing that's really missing however is a way to tell which proxies are fast and which are slow based on your location. It's very time consuming and frustrating to try proxy after proxy only to realize that none of them are fast enough, especially for viewing multimedia content.
If you've never used proxies before or simply want a proxy tool that's easy to activate at any time, FoxyProxy Extension is a comprehensive and easy to use tool for Firefox users.

I have installed foxyproxy and purchased their services. They have not sent an activation email with necessary activation information. I have opened four support requests with them and have not received the activation information. Don't expect any support with them
and without the activation information ----no service.
