Maybe it's only lack of knowledge but it isn't transparent to me what exactly is passed through the proxy and what isn't.

It was a little shock for me to see that the DNS request doesn't go through my proxy by default.
Now I wonder whether only a page from a specified domain or also the embedded objects (like images, stylesheets, flash objects aso) that are included from other servers than the specified go also through my proxy. In other words: Am I only anonymous for the specified server or is my whole page request processed through the proxy?

I would like to see an option to switch on the proxy for every last bit of traffic my browser causes that can be switched on with on clic or so. (Maybe i should post this to under "feature requests"...)

Hope I'll get a reply that helps me see things more clearly. Thanks in advance.

This is best answered by example. Turn on logging in FoxyProxy. If it was already turned on, click "Refresh Log" then "Clear Log" to make it easier to read.

Now visit http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/test1.html. Click "Refresh Log" and you should something similar to this:

This should demonstrate to you that all of the component parts of a webpage are routed through FoxyProxy.

If you're using Firefox 1.5.0.2 without FoxyProxy, and have defined a SOCKS5 proxy through Firefox's Connection Settings, Firefox always routes DNS lookups through that SOCKS5 server (reference).

Only with FoxyProxy can you tell Firefox to not route DNS lookups through a SOCKS5 server.

Does this explain things more clearly?

Regards,
Eric

Hi hostmaster,

What isn't working exactly? I looked at the screenshots but it's not clear to me which URL didn't go through the proxy.

By the way, there seems to be a bug in version 1.1 where if you add/edit a pattern, it doesn't take effect until you restart FF....sometimes. I'm working on figuring it out.

hi Eric,

I made pattern for Tor proxy. That pattern match is "http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org".
When my FF get test page (http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/test1.html) image from this page is not getting through Tor proxy. This image is hosting on .imageshack.us

Hi,

It looks like you are right. I foolishly set my matching pattern to "*" which of course means all traffic goes through that proxy.

There is a feature request to be able to right-click a link on a web page and open that link (and all its contents) with FoxyProxy. That feature is similar to this one... so I think I can get both implemented together.

I apologize for the misinformation. Thanks for setting things straight, hostmaster.

You should have a version which does what you request soon.

-Eric

Hi Mable,

It's been 3 days since my post and no new releases of FoxyProxy... so no, the problem isn't solved yet smile.gif

Can you explain how you want it to work? Isn't FoxyProxy following the patterns you defined?

OK, well privacy isnt' the only goal of FoxyProxy. Another goal is to dynamically route requets through any number of proxies. I think that goal is achieved pretty well. I am still working on the privacy goals. Remember, FoxyProxy has still only had one release!
