    OK, here's my deal

    ? Using Squid proxies with REMOTE locations
    ? Using Firefox 4.01
    ? Using Win7

    When I adjust the Advanced Settings within Firefox to make it look like I am logging in from the proxy REMOTE location, Facebook thinks I am still at my HOME location. I checked the Account Security within Facebook to verify this.

    My questions is.....why doesn't the Facebook Account Security section think that I am in the REMOTE location? Am I doing something wrong, or can Facebook see past these kind of proxies?
