    Just saw firefox's proxy add-on FoxyProxy. I do CL posting and have started to run into flagging and ghosting troubles.

    Has anyone used this before? Think it would work?

    Gonna try it tonight but more info is always better

    Try TOR. A lot better, but slower :(

    I think it just automates the proxy settings you have in FF and allows you to have more than just one (which is good since proxies usually die rather quickly). Obviously not as effective as TOR but used with the user agent switcher add-on gives you a degree of privacy in web surfing.

    If you are having problems you are problably using "bad" proxies with less anonymity. See if you can get hold of some elite ones, or like cocoholo said - try TOR. There are also some VPN services that have a great number of servers, but after a while you will have cycled them through.....

    I use the SwitchProxy tool for Firefox that clears cookies when you switch proxies.

    I make my own proxies (see me sig ;)) to put in there and its worked flawlessly for the last few months that I have been using it.
