anti censorship tool, Firefox browser, immunicity, unblocks UK government restricted sites
**EDIT AUGUST 2014***
Just days after the original Immunicity site was taken offline at least two clones have appeared. Immun.es offers the same unblocking functionality, completely free of charge.
Follow these steps to configure Mozilla Firefox to use Immunicity on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
1. In Firefox, go to Tools, then Options.
5. In the “Automatic Proxy” field, paste in the following:
6. Press OK, then OK on the Options diaglog.
Startpage operates from Holland – and uses SSL connections with “perfect forward secrecy”.
2. Enter search term eg “piratebay top 100”
The View By PROXY link must be double-clicked.
Because it’s totally private – and operates under Dutch law, your local ISP has been blocked from seeing the results.
The Government are introducing “porn filters”, that block …..
*Social media sites
Check out the Talk Talk restrictions menu and blocking options – this censorship has nothing to do with porn.
The Porn filter is a “BAIT AND SWITCH” tactic. Install this anti censorship tool.

This no longer works for Virgin media in the UK.
I could tell by the hits to the blog that something was underway.
Have you tried the Dutch search engine http://www.startpage.com?
Their proxy runs under Dutch law… so you’ll find their SSL search engine will open up any restrictions for you.
It works. Thank you so much. I’ll make it my search engine of choice and pass it on.
Even better is that they have won the EU europrise award for privacy.
They don’t store your IP or your queries. The EU insist that they actively delete your queries, so that there is no record of it.
They have never complied with a court order (Dutch police did try).
So, http://www.startpage.com are totally safe from the NSA, and your ISP. 🙂
dont work with Sky either
Thanks for letting me know. Startpage isn’t what you wanted, but it should still work for you.
Had a chat with several people, and I’m told the situation is this.
Sometimes there is a glitch and Sky/Talk Talk detect the proxy.
The guys said if you reboot the router, you’ll find the proxy works again….
So that’s the message that I can pass on. It has been blocked now and again, but a simple reboot will solve all that for you.
Let me know how you get on 🙂
hi again. tnx for the info. i will try that again although it didn’t work for me previously. just my luck, ha ha.
i really just wish all this ‘i must control everything’ desire from governments and the entertainment industries (mainly them, anyway) would stop. all the reports i read say how there will be this done, that done to hurt the customers. there has never been a single official recommendation to those industries to adapt to the digital age and not a single law that makes that happen. everything, everywhere, every time is doing the opposite, finding extra ways to screw people over! and, for governments, to spy on you!! what a world this has turned into!!
i think Cameron is going way too far and basically it’s to please the USA entertainment industries and security agencies. he isn’t worried about ‘the children’ but it makes a good cover move for spying on everyone. he has openly condemned China et al for this, but now does it himself!
i read where what he has done is against what the EU courts have said and that the ISPs are now liable for dictating what can go through their ‘pipes’, so should be sued. i am hoping that someone like ORG does this, on behalf of the citizens and then move on to him as he is the person who has started the censorship. i am also waiting to see where it goes next! just as an extra, it’s obvious that Sky is right up there in this, given that Murdoch has such close ties with the entertainment industries!
Works fine with me and I’m on Virgin in the U.K.
