Problem on running anonymous proxy

Hi folks,

Ubuntu 7.04 amd64

I have "SwitchProxy Tool 1.4.1", the addon of Firefox, installed and played around with it.

SwitchProxy works on FF. and can't find the hidden IP. On next day starting FF I can't get into my webmail box on One or 2 sites allows me to get in but blocks me visiting other pages on their sites. I have to clear all cookies and history before FF works nomal. I can't discover the cause. Advice would be appreciated. TIA.

Besides on running ISP proxy server can't find my IP address only displaying ISP's IP of the proxy server. But can back trace my IP address. Anything I haven't setup properly. Tks
