how to have Firefox automatically ask for proxy?

Posted

Is there a way to have firefox automatically ask me for a proxy when there is a need to login where I am?

I'm at work, and when I connect I need a proxy. However, chrome, IE, opera all ask me automatically my username and password. Not firefox. I know I can set it manually, but I wonder if there is a way for firefox to just prompt me? Its for a one time use so I do not want to set it manually.

I don't know if an add-on will do what you want, but look around.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.
