Most proxies exist due to misconfiguration. The fact that a proxy has no access restrictions configured does give you any automagical "rights" wrt (ab)use, and may hurt the owner financially if he has to pay for traffic or faces legal repercussions. Next to that there are very few legitimate uses for proxies (like evading nasty regimes or caching) but more questionable ones ranging from dodging geoip-like restrictions to scanning and then there's spam and "cracking" (no, not hacking). Next to *that*, as you found out yourself, usable proxies are hard to come by because checking them continuously for availability and features requires effort and time. So in short I'd suggest you just use your ISPs proxy or else scan for them yourself.

Not configured right more likely. If you just want browser support why not follow the TOR docs and use Privoxy or Polipo as conduit instead?..

You need to uncomment 'proxy_dns' in your proxychains.conf file to be able to use proxychains with firefox or opera. Be advised: I've tried many methods to get proxychains and firefox to play together and they just wont. If you want to proxify your browsing sessions then I suggest find a proxy pac file (like http://www.proxynova.com/proxy.pac) and set it as your autoconfig file in FireFox's network settings. Also, some proxies don't have dns lookup and thus unable to resolve webhosts.

as a side note if you are tired of trying to find valid proxies to populate proxychains.conf with i have a python script that i wrote that will retrieve 30 valid and working proxies. Here is the link: https://github.com/xajnx/proxyupdate.git

I've had to rewrite my script because the server I was pulling proxies from died or something. The new script can be found here https://github.con/xajnx/proxyhunter.git. It won't auto-populate proxychains.conf but writes found hosts to a file where you can basically cut and paste into proxychains.conf. I hope it helps y'all out
