A proxy being a server at a web address which serves as a gateway through which your browser deliberately passes data packets out (and they come back in through it as well) in order to mask your origin location. A proxy server must accept your browsers request to use the server as a proxy, so you cannot just randomly choose any internet address.

Thus you must obtain a proxy address to make use of. The list at this webpage is pretty thorough.

http://www.freeproxylists.net/

after you obtain the proxy address and port information click

Tools:Proxies
Click the New button
Change the default name if you want to
enter the internet address of the proxy site
enter the port information in the smaller text box to the right of the address box
at that point you can click the button to set that proxy server as the current proxy or just click OK to save it

you may enter as many different proxy choices as you wish following the above instructions
after you have saved at least one proxy you may click
Tools:Proxies and scroll down and click a proxy name you wish to use if one is not already selected or if you want to change the proxy
now when your surfing the net you may choose to use a proxy or to not use a proxy and if you have saved more than one proxy you may change between them as you might want to do

Relationships are ours to make; we define them, day by day,
by who we choose to love and how we choose to love them.
And, by these choices, define ourselves. ~~~Richard N. Patterson

Mostly people use proxy servers only for bypassing filters, Bypassing filter’s isn’t the main reason why proxies were invented. A basic advantage of using them is that they make you more anonymous and being anonymous is some time very useful for protection & security.

If you don't know so much about this then I will suggest you to use online proxy website like I am using OnlineProxyFree.com
