Hide IP Address with FireFox


How can you hide your ip address on Mozilla FireFox? Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how to hide your IP address on FireFox using proxy servers.

A proxy server hides your real IP address by masking it before your request reaches a website, but it does eliminate the need to connect to your ISP with your real IP.

Hide IP Address on Mozilla Firefox Step-By-Step Guide 

  1. Open your FireFox web browser. On the menu on the top please select the following: Tools, Options, Advanced, Network, and then Connection Settings.
  2. Put a check in the box labeled “Manual Proxy Configuration”
  3. Put a check in the box labeled “Use this proxy for all protocols”
  4. Under the HTTP Proxy field, enter “relay.testproxy.org”, without the quotes. Under the Port field, enter 8231.
  5. Click Ok to exit dialog boxes
  6. Go to MyIPAddress.com to confirm that the proxy was able to hide your IP address. When you try surfing to other sites, you’ll see a note that this proxy is limited to educational uses, along with some authorized IP-verifying links.
  7. Now you know how to change your IP address with a proxy, you just need to find a proxy that is not an “educational/test proxy” as the one provided above. Below is a link for some free and fee-based resources.
