Re: They know I'm using a proxy(Tor)...but how?
torproject.org supports two solution, to help webmasters to protect
theire service for anonymous missuse.
1: Have a look at https://www.torproject.org/tordnsel
It is a dynamic DNSBL with all tor exit nodes.
2: https://check.torproject.org/ offers an dynamic list
of all tor exit nodes, which can connect to a webserver.
(xx.xx.xx.xx has to be replaced by the IP of the webserver)
Both service are using a IP list of tor exit nodes. Your settings in
your browser are ok.
