Mozilla Firefox is probably the safest and most versatile web browser that you can use for surfing the Internet. However, there will be times when being able to change your IP address in Firefox will make it even safer from a privacy standpoint. For example, some forums and bulletin boards display a user's IP for public view when you post a message; Not exactly the kind of information you want everyone to know. Between entrepreneurs, travelers, and everyone else, there are numerous other reasons as well.
Below you'll learn how to change IP address in Firefox by using a special type of Internet server known as a proxy. Access to these server is available on both free and paid systems. We'll discuss those differences in this article as well.

The "HTTP Proxy" that you use may either be a free public proxy that you find on the net, a private proxy that you own, or one that was given to you by a paid service such as iPrivacyTools.
If you opt for the free option (public proxies), be aware of the risks and do not submit any online forms that require login information, personal or financial data. It is very difficult or impossible to know whether a free relay is being operated by a legitimate party. If you're going to change your Firefox IP address often, it is highly advisable to use a private service - whether that be our service or another.
