    Hi everyone. I have a question. I am having a hard time managing my proxies and ip addresses. I find my self switching proxies, logging into a bunch of different accounts ex:facebook, twitter, google+ ect and then forgetting to log out of these before switching proxies. I am pretty sure this defeats the whole purpose lol. So my question is, is there any easier way to manage these proxies? I guess first of all is there anyway to switch proxies with just a click of a button, instead of typing the ip and port number in every time I want to change. If there is can you please state wether it is compatible with mac/pc? There must be a better way! Thanks guys.

    try foxyproxy browser addon, you can change proxies with a click of not one but two buttons :), you can set url patterns, so a proxy will be used only on one site, however if you use more proxies on the same site, it doesn't prevent you from logging in with different proxies into the same account, so it isn't really a solution

    how many accs are we talking about? if it's not too many, you can use portable firefox instances, you can set one proxy in each and you don't have to worry about cookies either, just use the same instance for the same account every time
    rename the shortcut or you can customize the titlebar, change the default icon, you can rebrand the whole browser if you wish, so you'll know which instance belongs to which account of yours and you'll be able to distinguish easily, of course it's not really an option if you have hundreds of accs, but i guess you wouldn't manage those manually anyway

    Thank you!!! No I am starting small with about 30 accounts 5 accounts per proxy. I see you mentioned worrying about cookies. I never worried about cookies before when i was manually switching proxies and logging onto other sites on the same browser. Should this be something to start looking at and watching for?

    yes, it should

    you aren't only supposed to change proxies, but delete cookies/browser cache between changing two accs, but if you haven't did this until now with the already existing accs and you mixed the ips between them, it won't really help on those accs anymore
    but if you're planning to create/use fresh accs, you should equally pay attention to clearing cookies and switching ips

    Understood thank you very much. Should I worry about changing proxies and washing the browser between managing multiple websites such as web 2.0's?

    do you mean for instance if you login to twitter than log out and login to a different site like tumblr, then log out, login to pinterest etc? because in that case, cleaning the cookies isn't necessary, only if you were to login to the same site with multiple accs

    No I got that, I manage a couple web 2.0's do I have to change proxies in between managing and publishing these sites? I would guess no but I thought I would ask.

    ok, so you create a web 2.0 acc, you can manage the acc without clearing the cookies/changing the ip of course, but if you were to create a new one, depending on how many accs you want to put on the same proxy from the same site, you should clear cookies and change ips accordingly before creating new accounts

    so if you want to use/create 5 accs on the same ip - won't be possible everywhere, you'll be prompted to phone verify on some sites - you create the 5 accs and then when you're finished and want to create more, you clear the cookies and change the ip, create 5 new, then clear cookies/change ip before you create another 5 batch, rinse and repeat this until you're satisfied with the amount of accs you created, when accessing the accs, you can do it in 5 batches without clearing the cookies (because the accs are already linked by the ip) or you can clear the cookies, it's up to you
