    Hello. I want to do this:

    - Open Firefox.
    - When opened automatically select a new proxy.
    - Then close.
    - When I open again, it chooses another proxy.

    Is there an extension/addon for this?

    They only have 4 US proxy to use. I think I need a program that changes IP everytime Firefox opens. Then I import public proxies to it.

    You can do this a lot easier with add-ons that will close a tab and re-open a new one with a different proxy.

    The add-on is Proxy Tool.

    You want to setup for proxy on rotation for every new window/tab.

    I will check this out. However, I need to remove the cookies, cache, and history everytime I finish the task. Maybe Click & Clean will help?

    Are you running something like iMacros that requires this?

    you can easily change proxies, clear cookies, open new tabs with imacros, just use the PROXY, CLEAR and TAB OPEN command, save the proxies in a .csv then specify it as DATASOURCE in the macro, play the macro in loop, look at the imacros wiki how to do these things exactly if in doubt
    i'd recommend the firefox addon, not the standalone browser, unless you need some more complicated thing to do and it requires javascript

    If you know the basics of programming you can write a program that modifies firefox's preferences file changing:
    network.proxy.http to the IP address of a proxy you want to use
    network.proxy.http_port to the port
    network.proxy.type to "1" (without quotes). This tells firefox that you want to use a proxy.

    You can just use the Profile Manager and make it prompt every time you launch FireFox.

    the tor browser would be good for you if you don't need the proxys to be the same. you don't even have to have to close the browser to get a new "identity" you click the button called change my identity and you don't need to import your own proxies to it. Look it up it's a little bit different then proxies. TOR (The Onion Router)

    Decided to give Tor a test myself but I have a feeling a lot of sites will still be able to discern your real IP address as they can get it via Javascript.

    it's not that the sites will recognize your real ip, because they won't, it's just that tor ips are abused to hell and are blacklisted on most sites by now, so you won't be able to use it
    unless you do some highly illegal shit, you don't have to worry about js leaking your ip either and/or you can try to disable it

    Yes, but if you hit a dead proxy and get an error 933 or similar for PROXY not found ... even with script error set to ignore - your script will die right there. The only known workaround is some obscure javascript coding I found somewhere that doesn't address the exact issue.

    I'm puzzled in 2016 as I look around the web the truth is - there is NOTHING on the market or available by plugin that can simply port my traffic through a random proxy in a list? You have to be kidding me.

    This is critical functionality to a project I currently maintain, and it's ridiculous this is still going on - people were asking to do this in 2010. For clarity here - none of the proposed solutions in this thread work, or if they do - they are way too convoluted for what probably ought to amount to about two lines of code.

    Can somebody please create an actual working simple method to rotate proxies in firefox from a text or csv file? PLEASE!

    2016, and this can't be done yet. Wow. Distressing. All I need is for a random proxy from the list to be used on EVERY page load. There should never be back to back requests by the same proxy.
