    I installed some proxy add on (Proxytool and Quickproxy) on my FF but I'd like to use my own daily scraped 10k public proxy list

    is there some way to do it?

    i guess OP wanted to know if he can import the list of 10k public proxies into an addon and then use them in ff, there's no such tool as of now at least not that i know of

    you can try foxyproxy tho, but you have to add the proxies one-by-one, however after that you can switch between them very easily

    it seems to be another good idea for developers :)

    Proxy tool FF plugin (details on BHW here) can import up to 100 proxies per proxy type (HTTP(S), SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 ) for a total of 300 proxies. Importing the proxies from public sites that are not "tested" will not always work.

    The updated version will be ready by tonight (NY time) that has the additional features per user's requests.

    Hope it helps.

    @wahidpolin: nothing new for me, not what I'm looking for

    @portalweb: I imported 100 proxies on proxy tool field, but couldn't mask my Ip, maybe I need to digg into your addon

    "couldn't mask my IP" - you means that they can see your IP? If that is the case, you need elite proxies (HTTPS), not anonymous proxies (HTTP).
