Hello. I’ve been using Whonix for a long time and it’s one of the greatest anonymous distributions. But I have a problem. I need to visit some of web-sites which have totally aggressive IP spam filter (so such kind of web-sites block all Tor-exit nodes and VPN nodes) so the only solution for me to log in on such websites is to use random proxy with Firefox ESR on top of Whonix-Workstation.
But I have a problem. SOCKS4 proxies work well but they are easily detected by website spam filters (they detect that I’m using proxy). HTTP and SOCKS5 proxies are mostly undetectable by websites spam filters but they don’t work! When I set up SOCKS5 or HTTP(S) proxy in Firefox ESR settings and reload the page - I just wait and that’s all. I can reload one page 3-5 times and only then it works so it’s extremely slow! I tries using proxychains package available in debian repositories but it doesn’t solve the problem - nothing works. I’d like to know the reason why only SOCKS4 proxies work well in Firefox on top o Whonix-Workstation? May be because of huge ping of something more? What should I do in order to make SOCKS5 and HTTP(S) proxies work well? Whonix-Workstation firewall is disabled.
