he method for updating manual proxy settings is new to me, admittedly, but with even a tiny bit of research it seems super accessible and straightforward. I am a Ipvanish user who is a little disenchanted with their extension on Firefox, and simply want to use a manual proxy to browse instead.

When updating my proxy settings, I do what every YouTube or WikiHow article would tell you, and I search for the best available Ipvanish server for my region, copy the link directly, apply it to the manual proxy setting, set all proxies to this same link, and set the port to 80.

However, instead of prompting me for a login/password after closing and reopening the browser, every single page instead goes through a connection timeout and ultimately fails to load altogether.

Has anyone else experienced this and discovered a fix? Or can you perhaps guide me through a mistake I am making, perhaps in my process or a setting which I overlooked?

This is the proxy page settings but what settings to change and what IP or numbers to use is based on the Proxy your using Firefox has no control over that setting preferences.
