Hi Guys,
I mostly use Firefox incognito mode for all my torrenting. I avoid Chrome incognito as I don't want Google to know everything I do.

Now my problem is that most of the torrent sites e.g. 1337x/kat are blocked in India. The simple https trick doesn't work anymore for me.

I use frigate CDN in Chrome which allows you to use the bypass proxy for specific websites only. But it doesn't work in Firefox incognito.

I looked at some VPN proxies in Firefox Extensions Store but all of them switch all browser traffic to the proxy which I don't want to do as that would route my direct downloads from other unblocked websites on IDM via the proxy and thus slow them down.

Any of you guys using any unblocker on Firefox which allows custom website list ala frigate?

Use Opera for accessing blocked websites. I use Firefox for everything except torrent sites, which I open in Opera.

My only problem is that I use my headless file server for all my downloads and shifty browsing via Windows Remote Connection.
That PC has a anemic fanless 1.5 GHz quad core Pentium Silver J4205 CPU and 8 GB RAM and a lot of apps hammer the machine.
I only keep qbittorrent,Notepad++ and one browser open on that.

I have Opera installed but Firefox beats every other browser on speediness and low resource footprint.

I use a RaspberryPi for my downloads. I copy the magnet links via Opera on my desktop, and add the downloads via the transmission web interface. The Pi is running a Seafile sync server,Kodi, a Nextcloud server as well as hosting some test websites, and it doesn't feel slow.
Why do you need to browse for torrents via a remote connection? Won't it be easier to just add the links via the qbittorrent web interface?

Nice setup you got going there.
Actually I always use my company laptop since I don't want to use my personal laptop for the long hours I spend watching movies/Netflix etc.
So thats why I access my file server via Remote Desktop which is running Windows 10 Pro x64.
The dual 8 TB RAID0 drives on my file server are shared on the LAN and I access my movies/TV series/**** from the company laptop via mapped drives.
I avoid opening any dodgy sites at all on my company laptop.
I only used the qbittorrent web interface sometimes when I need to check the speeds of torrents since thats a 192.168.1* IP and won't be flagged by the company laptop monitoring tools.

I have set up a full RSS feed based automated torrent downloader using a Raspberry pi 3B+,flexget and qbittorrent-nox.

In case someone is interested this is how I convert http to https in the URL(the regexp part under urlrewrite function) in the config.yml file of flexget which downloads the torrent files matching user-defined string patterns -

tasks:
#-#Task noisyboy
noisyboy:
rss: https://glodls.to/rss.php?cat=81
urlrewrite:
sitename:
regexp: 'http://glodls.to/torrent.php\?id=(?P<id>\d+)*'
format: 'https://glodls.to/download.php?id=\g<id>'
template:
- 720p

Hey buddy I think you can skip the manual download part as well if you can identify string patterns and your torrent tracker has a RSS feed.PM me if you need more details.
