Chrome and Firefox are not using those proxy settings when trying to connect to the internet. Any suggestions?

Is there an application like Proxyfier for Ubuntu?

You can use dconf-editor for setting proxy settings. Firefox will understand them.

You can try a chrome extension called ProxySwitchy or ProxySwitchySharp.

Can you provide more information about exactly what these extensions do, how they're different from each other, and how to obtain them? –  Eliah Kagan Sep 8 '12 at 6:59
