Firefox AddOn sufficient for using VPN?
« on: July 05, 2017, 10:47:14 PM »
Sorry for this newbie question:

Assume I have an account at an VPN provider. Now I want to use it in Browser (Firefox).
Is a  Firefox AddOn sufficient or do I need additionally  install a VPN base (driver) on Windows?

Have a look for example at WindScribe:

They offer at their WebPages a download for Windows and another for FirefoxAddon.

I could imagine that Windows packages are on ly required I f I want to access remote servers from various local clients.
If I want to surf-only in browser the Firefox AddOn could be sufficient.

Am I right?

Possibly it is just the opposite: I need just the Windows VPN driver and the Firefox AddOn is just for additional tasks like AdBlocking,....

It does not become clear.

Thank you
Peter
