comment Does an HTTPS proxy encrypt traffic between proxy client and server for HTTP requests?
+1 for a clear answer. Though, one point: When using an HTTPS proxy (not SOCKS) will the browser do the DNS lookup through its ISP, or will it delegate that to the proxy? If it does it through the ISP then if the goal of the attackers is to guess the identity of the sites that you are talking to - even an HTTPS proxy won't help.

@SteffenUllrich a) Thanks. b) According to this answer it does. (See "Supported in FF 33+" on that answer.) (I haven't used a proxy yet. This is a preliminary question.) c) If you don't add the @ispiro before your comment, I don't get notified of it.

I've edited the question to make it clear that I'm asking about a case where the connection to the proxy is secure.

It looks like you're answering about a regular TLS connection. That's not my question. I'm asking about when browsing is done through a proxy-server.

ISP at least would know the target IP address, because this is needed to route your data to the target - I don't understand. Are you referring to the proxy's IP? If not - why would the ISP need to know the IP?

Thanks for the link. That's very interesting reading.

Thanks. Modern computing hardware is so robust ... - Any statistics on this? (1 bit in 100GB might break a disk image.)

comment Add certificate authority to one browser only
I've now found this answer on this site saying that Firefox does indeed have a separate list. That implies that it would be fine if installing on Firefox. (As mentioned in an answer here.) I would, still, prefer a confirmation that FF won't add it to the computer's list, if such a source exists.

Thanks. Any source for that?
