[Set a Proxy Server in Firefox]

1) Click the Tools -> Options in Firefox to get to the following screen:




2) Click the Advanced tab and then Settings in the Connection box.




3) Select Manual proxy configuration and fill in the proxy IP and port.


[Use EPS to Set the Proxy for IE and Firefox]

Double click the proxy in the list and that's all. Elite Proxy Switcher will do all the work above for you, both for Firefox and IE.



Download the EPS here:Elite Proxy Switcher

You can get some proxies from our forum or proxy list. Please test the proxies by Elite Proxy Switcher before using them because proxies die fast. After setting the proxy, you can surf http://www.find-ip.net/ to check whether your IP is changed.

Hi,

I've tried this and it doesn't work for me. Do I need to download special software, or do I just have to keep trying different IP addresses until I find one that works?

This guide covers rather basic user-level proxy setup.

But maybe you can also suggest some software like OpenVPN, which I can install on my own CentOS 7 VPS, which can later be used as a proxy, but not for all traffic from my Windows machine, but for browser only?
Preferably by enabling/disabling some browser extension or doing something similar.

I know about OpenVPN and similar tools, but they are usually designed to have all the traffic sent through them, while I need that only for a few sites, which can't be opened directly.
