Firefox configuration


The Settings area in Chromium on Linux does not include proxy configuration. To set a proxy in Chromium, you must either pass an argument on the command line, or install an extension that sets the proxy for you.

Set your proxy with command-line arguments (advanced)

You may use the command-line argument --proxy-server to launch Chromium with a specific proxy server. For example, the following command-line argument tells Chromium to use our London proxy on port 11000:


Note that if you launch Chromium through a desktop or menu shortcut, you will need to modify the shortcut itself. The method you will use to modify the shortcut depends on both your Linux distribution (e.g. Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint) and the distribution version (e.g. 11.02 or 14.04 for Ubuntu).

If you are uncomfortable working on the command line or modifying system settings, we strongly recommend using one of the extensions listed above.
