By default Firefox when using a socks proxy will still use the local DNS configuration before forwarding traffic to the proxy. This can have some drawbacks:

Firefox can be configured to use the SOCKS proxy for DNS by changing the following setting in about:config :

network.proxy.socks_remote_dns

Set this value to true to route DNS traffic to the SOCKS proxy.
