    not any easy, ready-made solution, at least not any i know of

    maybe with imacros somehow
    i'm thinking about making a .csv file with the proxies, one proxy per line , specify this .csv as datasource and record a macro of checking the proxies against basically any site in a given timeframe set by you (every minute, every 5 minutes etc.), if the page loads/a certain html element is found before timeout (which is also set by you), keep the proxy, if not, skip to the next one
    play the macro in loop
