How to set up HTTP(S) Proxy on Firefox

In this tutorial we will show you how to set up HTTP(S) Proxy on Firefox but first let’s see what are our requirements.

Requirements

In order to set up the HTTP(S) Proxy on Firefox you will need:

  1. A CactusVPN account. If you don’t have one you can try our services for free.
  2. Your Proxy username, password and Proxy server address. You can find them in your account on our website, by going to Settings.

Recommendations

To skip the manual setup we recommend to use the CactusVPN Extension for Firefox.

Go step-by-step through following instructions:

  1. In Firefox browser go to the menu (1) and click on Preferences (on macOS) or Options (on Windows) (2).

  4. The first time you’ll try to visit a website, a window will appear asking for an username and a password (10).

    Type your VPN username and password.

    You can find your VPN username and password in your account on our website, by going to Settings -> VPN Username & Password. Make sure you use your VPN username and password and NOT the website account credentials (What is the difference?).

    Click on OK (11).
