    Hello shopjd,

    Use Fireofx addon PhProxy InBasic. The add-on re-directs your traffic through existing web proxies, acting as a protective screener between you and the internet

    Hope this helps!

    You need Firefox 3 for the latest version of PhProxy InBasic addon to work.  If you have Firefox 2, an older version of PhProxy InBasic may work.

    Alternatively, you might want to try the Ultrasurf proxy:
    It comes with a plugin for Firefox:

    The interesting thing about Ultrasurf is that it is supposed to work as a proxy for other internet applications as well, not only for the browser, by simply configuring them to use the IP "" as a proxy. I have not tested this though.
