    If I set up multiple firefox profile, and 1 profile have a flash cookie, will it affect the other profile?

    If I use private proxy with the second profile, will it leaks my real IP?

    What really cause Proxy to leak real IP?

    I use hidemyass Public Proxies Anonymity level: High + PK
    and clear all of my cookies.

    The I use whatismyip (itsobviouswhatgoeshere) c()m to check my IP

    Most of the time the site show the proxy IP.

    But sometimes it show my real IP and figure out that I am behind a proxy.

    How did it happen?

    Is there a different between multiples firefox profile and multiple portable version of firefox?

    If a proxy leak your IP, obviously it's not anonymous. You mentioned private proxy, those are usually high anonymous proxies unless the admin did not messed up the proxy config.

    For flash cookies, I suggest you to use 'better privacy' plugin to clear this information. Hope my reply helped you out a bit.
