macos – Proxychains can’t load process….: No such file or directory

I have tried running Proxychains on both an Intel Mac and an M1 Mac. I am completely new to this sort of thing and just want to learn. I am not a coder.

When I run proxychains firefox on Intel Mac it returns -bash: proxychains: command not found. When I run the same command on M1 it returns zsh: command not found: proxychains.

Most instructions I’ve read show proxychains as the command to use, but, as shown above, that isn’t working. I’ve read one suggestion to use proxychains4 as a command (though I’m not sure why) so I tried that. When I run proxychains4 firefox both computers return the following:

% proxychains4 firefox
[proxychains] config file found: /opt/homebrew/etc/proxychains.conf
[proxychains] preloading /opt/homebrew/Cellar/proxychains-ng/4.14/lib/libproxychains4.dylib
proxychains can't load process....: No such file or directory

locate proxychains shows the path /opt/homebrew/Cellar/proxychains-ng/4.14/lib/libproxychains4.dylib is visible on both computers.

I have searched high and low for an answer on why this won’t work but I’m stumped.
