What kind of proxy is "proxy_choosen_by_me"?
I'm not aware of a proxy standard that would work
the way you described. It certainly wouldn't work
with HTTP forwarding proxies.
And while I'm not sure, I also believe that
Firefox can't access other HTTP proxies through
socks proxies anyway.
If that's true, you need an additional proxy
before Tor, for example:
Firefox -> Privoxy -> Tor -> another HTTP proxy -> web site
Most of the time, however, using a proxy after Tor makes
no sense as it usually reduces your anonymity level again
(the IP address the target website sees doesn't change).
