Introduction

The IPBurger Extension for Firefox is specifically designed for protecting Stealth/Business Accounts, secure surfing, and streaming. It turns your browser into a protected browser, where you can use your business account without ever worrying about leaks, being caught or linked. The Extension provides extra layers of security that are not present in traditional VPN Software: DNS & WebRTC Protection, Auto-Connect, Kill Switch, and Browser Spoofing.

Requirements

  • macOS 10.9+, Windows 7+, Chrome OS & its variants or Modern Unix/Linux
    For other Operating Systems, follow our Setup Guides.
  • Firefox v60+. Head over to Chrome.com and download the latest version of Chrome for your operating system
  • An active Plan/Service on IPBurger.com.

Initial Setup

2. Setup Proxy Credentials for your IP address

Proxy Credentials (Username and Password) are not the same as your account's email address and password. Proxy Credentials are issued on a per IP Address basis. Each of your service/IP Addresses has distinct Proxy Credentials.

A. Dedicated Proxies

B. Personal VPN

C. Residential Proxies

 

A. Dedicated Proxies

Login to your account, and find the IP address/Service you want to use.

Click on the Download VPN Credentials button, and select HTTP Proxy.

These are your Proxy Credentials. Copy-Paste the HTTP Proxy Credentials into the Extension.

Firefox Extension supports the following Proxy Protocols: HTTP, HTTPS, SOCKSv5.

 

B. Personal VPN

Access your VPN Service here. Click on the Manage button.

Click on the Download VPN Credentials button, and select HTTP Proxy.

Select a location.

There are more locations available in the actual service. Once you clicked on the location, the credentials will be shown or a profile will be downloaded. 

These are your Proxy Credentials. Copy-paste the HTTP Proxy Credentials into the Extension.

C. Residential Proxies

Proxy Credentials (Username and Password) are not the same as your IPBurger account's email address and password. Proxy Credentials are issued on a per proxy user basis. Each of your proxy users has distinct Proxy Credentials. The number of proxy users available depends on the plan you have purchased. If you haven't already gone through the Residential Proxy - Quick Start Guide, please go through it once to understand all its features and have a smoother experience.

You can find your Residential Proxy service here.

 

 

Click on the proxy user that you want to set up, change the proxy user settings as per your needs and click on the 'Save' button.

 
*It is recommended to use ISP with a proxy user for creating/managing business accounts.
*If you are on a Regular Proxy Plan, it is mandatory to whitelist your IP Address in step 2. If you are on a Premium Proxy Plan, you don't need to worry about this step.
 
These are your Proxy User Credentials. Copy-paste the Proxy Credentials into the Extension.
 

 

3. Connect to VPN

Click on Save. This will automatically connect you to the IP Address.

Once connected, you should see the PROTECTED status, and the Extension icon will turn Green.

Now your Firefox is set up to use IPBurger VPN. Every time you start the browser, it would automatically connect to VPN.

Next Steps

Cookies

If you have previous sessions and cookies that you want to import, here’s an Extension for that: Cookie Manager for Firefox
We will leave this up to your requirements and expertise of operating Business Accounts.

Run in Private windows

It is important to allow the extension to run in Private Windows, otherwise, your traffic in Private Windows will leak out!

Go to about:addons in Firefox and click Allow for Run in Private Windows for IPBurger.

Built-In Protections and Spoofing features

The Extension includes many-fold protection against any kind of leak.

IP Address & IPv6 | ✔Auto-Connect | ✔Kill Switch | ✔DNS | ✔WebRTC | ✔Timezone | ✔Language | ✔GPS

Head over to Extension FAQ to know more about them.

Disconnect from VPN, turn it off

We deliberately do not provide an option to turn the protection Off, since that can lead to accidental leaks, mixed-up cookies, and caches when you access the browser without protection.

To access the Internet without a VPN, follow the instructions in the FAQs.

Set up multiple accounts using multiple IP addresses

On Firefox, you can easily set up multiple isolated accounts and use them simultaneously without them ever being linked.

Troubleshooting

IPBurger Extension for Browsers is robust and should work in most cases, even when other VPN softwares we provide may fail. If you are having an issue, some possible causes are listed here.

Server unreachable

Reason: The extension is unable to connect to our servers.

Causes:

  • Check if you are connected to Internet
  • Is your country/ISP/firewalls actively blocking connections to VPNs or Proxies?
    It is possible that your Internet Provider has blockers in their Firewalls against certain Protocols or Ports. We support multiple Protocols & Ports for some services. Try them out while setting up
  • Are you connected to another VPN/Proxy? Please disable, or at best, uninstall them before using IPBurger Extension
  • One of our servers might be having temporary issues. In line with this, we have active monitors against our servers’ availability and we would be already working on resolving it. The connection should be back in max of couple hours. Feel free to contact our support.

Invalid credentials

Reason: The Proxy credentials you provided are invalid.

Causes:

Invalid IP | Another VPN/Proxy Interfering

Reason: The Public IP Address assigned to you has been found invalid, and it does not belong to IPBurger.

Causes:

  • Do you have any other VPN/Proxy solutions enabled? Please disable them, or at best, uninstall them so that they do not interfere with IPBurger Extension.
  • Please contact our support if you see this regardless of the above.

Google Hangouts & Voice don’t function

Reason: The Extension disables WebRTC for preventing IP Leaks. Without WebRTC, many VOIP and  Video Calling services can not connect via peer-to-peer network.

This is the browser's default functionality and any issues related to this are out of scope.
