How to bypass the Zscaler web proxy/filter?

Ok so here are the details, I want to access sites like youtube, and well just youtube and I tried the https protocol and that didn't work and on top of that there's a bug installed within our computer especially designed to keep us away from changing any of the proxy settings in all of these browsers and I only have these 3 browsers: Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome. If possible I would prefer Firefox because of the add-ons that I have with it. And i can't modify anything within the advance settings button on the Network/Internet Preference Pane. And as my last resort I ask all of you on how do I bypass this web filter?

P.S. I have a mac mountain lion v10.8.4

Tank you very much for your support

I used FoxyProxy addon for FF and it worked well with the proxy changing but I still didnt have the required user name password combo to get past the firewall, that is added by IT admin when you have been authorised as a user, so good luck.

Thank you very much, all I had to do was make a new proxy that said "direct connection" you are the best

I feel like the only way to get past zscaler is to use a brute force hacking tool to crack the password. If you right click zscaler you can try guessing it. Although you might be able to put a config into place that will allow you.

If you want to bypass the filter than talk to the system administrator. I'm guessing they have youtube and other sites blocked for a reason. But if you can make a good argument for why you need access than maybe they will give it to you.

Not that simple, I have a bad reputation with the admin that runs the computer, and this is a school-wide thing and the people at our school aren't very smart, and as I said there wouldn't be a good reason anyway the school already setup an education filter and If I asked them to unblock it they'ed only put the remote desktop app while watching my screen then slap it on their monitor 24/7.

same here and now they have blocked about every thing I know and everything I can find!!!

any suggestions???????????????

Use an https web proxy. For example https://myhttpsproxy.com

P.S. I've been working against them, got in trouble countless times and before I was there they didn't even have parental controls on the computers just a web proxy attached to the server, not the computers. Now they have it all, want a list:

  1. Restricted applications to only if they're from the app store, then they blocked the app store.
  2. Web proxy virus (made by the admin of over 200+ students, and controlled) into the computer so even if I get in and have the opportunity to shut-down the proxy from the network pref-pane it'll just keep going.

So the only real logical answer is an add-on from fire-fox because they also blocked the installing of extensions from chrome.
