I'm having issues with specific domains on my ISP (for example, and, and am currently accessing these sites over the tor browser bundle. I'd like to be able to create a list of sites to proxy, and proxy these and only these through a proxy server i control (or tor) so that things actually work properly with these sites, pending my ISP fixing them. proxmate might do this eventually, but are there any other extensions that would let me proxy specific sites only?

I'm currently running firefox 13 on windows 7. I'll be trying to follow up on whether this is a DNS or ISP issue seperately, I just would like some way to proxy only these domains.

I wouldn't be averse to running additional software if necessary, but ideally would like to keep it to simple browser extensions.

This add-on should get the job done:

AutoProxy :: Add-ons for Firefox

AutoProxy is an add-on to help you use your proxy (http/socks) automatically & efficiently.

With AutoProxy, you no longer need to switch your proxy status between on & off manually. If you prefer to visit a website via proxy, just add it's domain to AutoProxy's preference. After that, when you surfing, specified websites will be transfered through proxy while leaving others connect directly.

This was the solution i eventually went with, with polipo running at the other end. Its also pretty neat that i can set different proxies for different sets of sites - useful for future geo-coding workarounds. – Journeyman Geek Jun 7 '12 at 3:36

You might want to try FoxyProxy -

It lets you set a list of domains that you'd like to proxy - you can set patterns or specify domains (pattern can include wildcards or regular expressions). A brief explanation of how it can be configured can be found here.
