I need to be able to browse the web with Firefox using the IP from my dedicated server.

Is there a way I could do this without having to use SSH on the local machine?

I mean, I want to setup the proxy server on the dedicated server, and then use it from any computer like a normal socks proxy without having to use ssh there.

Squid is a very popular proxy server. You can use that but do not forget to configure ACL/Authentication to prevent abuse.
