Easily track proxy status with this tiny freeware add-on for Firefox. Torbutton's interface is a simple text or icon indicator on the status bar. This add-on doesn't require TOR, and it will work with your browser's default proxy settings.
Installing Torbutton follows the common Firefox add-on procedure. Enabled by default, users can open the add-on's preferences with a simple context-click. Radio buttons control displaying the Torbutton as text or an icon. Additional settings allow users to change proxy settings without opening another Firefox control. After setting preferences, users can click the Torbutton icon to toggle enabling the proxy.
Not just for TOR users, this freeware add-on simplifies toggling proxy status for any Firefox user.
Torbutton is a 1-click way for Firefox users to enable or disable the browser's use of Tor. It adds a panel to the statusbar that says "Tor Enabled" (in green) or "Tor Disabled" (in red). The user may click on the panel to toggle the status. If the user (or some other extension) changes the proxy settings, the change is automatically reflected in the statusbar.
