Great job grahamsz!

I owe you a pizza whenever you'll come to Italy ;-)

However I suggest to include the following quote in the Tetherbot homepage (or in a brand new FAQ section of it!):

Proxies ----->

General (Check enable,Proxy Name: Tetherbot, Leave blank Proxy Notes, Select Animation icon & Include this proxy) ---------->

Proxy Details (Select Manual Proxy Configuration, Host name: localhost Port: 1080, Select Socks proxy?-Socks v5) Click ok a warning message should appear saying "You didn't enter and enable any white....." Hit yes

Tools/FoxyProxy/Use Proxy "Tetherbot for all URLs

Now refresh your page and see if you are able to go online..

Update: Make sure you to Check "Use SOCKS proxy for DNS lookups" Is Under Global Settings.
I've spent at least two hours trying over and over again with the Firefox proxies settings before reading this ;-)
