    I've tried using free proxies listed on different websites, but they either don't work, or I'm using them wrong (I go to the dialogue box of configure how a browser connects to the internet and fill in the proxy IP and port, but then webpages don't load).

    The proxies you are using don't work. Try running them through a proxy checker, or using shared/private proxies.

    ^basically what Jared said. Free proxies are trash - at best. At worst they will fuck you up.

    If you're using accounts that you want to keep safe(unbanned), use private/shared proxies.. not public. :)

    Free proxy lists on the type of websites you're talking about have a pretty short lifespan. They're typically out of date almost as fast as they get posted.
