    Any one can help me with this?? I get good working proxies but most of them are working to slow (sometimes firefox freezes) does any one have an idea of whats hapening?

    would it be better if I use a proxy soft or manually insert it in my browser?

    thanks for your time, and many thanks in advance for any answers

    I guess you might be talking about public proxies. They are always solw. Why don't you try some paid services. And if you are having problem with firefox, use different browser like flock.

    most public proxies - guess also u are using them - are f* slow, I also made that experience. Now I use private proxies and pay some bucks monthly. Just in case - don't even think to switch to tor, this is even slower. And: for some scenarios, public proxies are especially waste of time since other people also use them to post for instance to craigslist. If you use a multithreaded app like xrumer, proxies can be useful. When targetting a single site and using your browser, you should buy private proxies and hope, that they are not used by anybody else for your target site.
