Activate Foxyproxy on a tab-by-tab basis & Electrolysis

Post by marcino284 » Sun Nov 13, 2016 10:42 am

Hello,

as we see - it is a very important & 'must-be' and multiple times requested feature that great FoxyProxy still lacks due to Firefox's antique single-process architecture:

https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/a ... ews/60624/
https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/a ... ws/341451/
https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/a ... ws/442310/
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=627
http://superuser.com/questions/250172/d ... in-firefox
https://www.google.pl/#q=firefox+proxy+per+tab

Is that now possible to implement it, as things have changed and Firefox has become Multi-process (Electrolysis):

Hello,

thanks for writing! it is still not possible. The problem has nothing to do with e10s/electrolysis, and everything to do with FoxyProxy not knowing which tab/window is making a URL request. However, a completely new Firefox Proxy API is being written for WebExtensions:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add ... Extensions
https://wiki.mozilla.org/WebExtensions

We are contributors to that specification. We've made sure that proxy-by-tab will be possible with that API. So, once that is out... FoxyProxy must be completely re-written ... but it will work! :mrgreen:
