Go back and read David Boles step-by-stepper. I only did as he wrote,
and localhost was only set in Firefox in his example.

By default you should already have "localhost" set to
in /etc/hosts, here's mine with my local junkyard network:

[root iam maps]# more /etc/hosts       localhost.localdomain   localhost   ru.wayward4now.net      ru   ima.wayward4now.net     ima   ur.wayward4now.net      ur   iam.wayward4now.net     iam

So just doing those edits to firefox should make it run just dandy if
your /etc/hosts file has localhost set. 

Fire up Firefox

click on edit > preferences > advanced > network > settings
and you'll see the page he references. click on the button = 'manual',
then add the following values:

HTTP proxy []    Port [ 3128]

That should fire up when you restart Firefox. Did I leave anything out
David? Thank you for your instructions. It was nifty. Ric
