I'm trying to use an IP address with a port in foxyproxy to surf websites which is blocked in our country, but the problem is any IP address I fill in is not working!
How to solve the issue? (I used this:,Port:1080)
I appreciate in advance.
I gain no success. I found that IP address from HideMyAss website.

Firstly, did the same proxy work when you disable FoxyProxy and enter it in normal Firefox proxy settings? A lot of proxies go down quite quickly, where did this one come from? Are you sure it's FoxyProxy that's causing this? – Bob Feb 18 '12 at 3:44
Good point, I'll use it in another browser and keep you posted with the result. – Alireza Hos Feb 18 '12 at 3:47
