I boot Tails 1.6 with persistence and with admin password in order to install proxychains then I install via apt-get an edit the /etc/proxychains.conf to add socks5 after Tor, I save the changes and proceed to run proxychains firefox from the command line and this is what I get:

amnesia@amnesia:~$ proxychains firefox
ProxyChains-3.1 (http://proxychains.sf.net)
/usr/bin/proxychains: 9: exec: firefox: not found

I also tried:

amnesia@amnesia:~$ proxychains tor browser
ProxyChains-3.1 (http://proxychains.sf.net)

Anyone can help me on this? I googled a few hours and Im not able to find the answer


I believe you are missing the "-" between tor and browser it should look like,

sudo proxychains tor-browser


sudo proxychains /usr/local/bin/tor-browser
