    Clear cookies/cache/flash cookies.

    Use Firefox Private Window or Chrome Incognito.

    Install Better Privacy plugin which deletes flash cookies automatically.

    I think facebook uses GPS location or something along these lines. You can download a firefox plugin "Geolocater" to fake it.

    Try using a VPN instead of a proxy. There are several ways for a server to know you are behind a proxy and it's apparent FB is using one of those methods.

    If you are using an open proxy, they can easily tell where you from by getting your real IP address using simple php super global vars like:

    HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR]
    [HTTP_X_FORWARDED_HOST]
    [HTTP_X_FORWARDED_SERVER]

    and there are many more.

    i think you are missing this
    "Use this proxy server for all protocol"
    you have to select this option :)

    Are you running ccleaner? Make sure to change the setting to clear micro media cookies aka flash cookies, if your using Firefox you should use a plugin called "click & clean" so all you have to do to clear all data is close your browser and it will run ccleaner on exist automatically.
