thanks for finding upstreawm bug. Looking at the patch attached to it I
saw that this must be supported since 2003 somehow.

Can you please test to set the following preference to true in


then restart firefox and let me know if proxy settings are properly
pulled in from gconf. In addition, the following settings should be
taken from your gconf instead of mozilla system pref. Please verify if
all work as well:

    {"network.proxy.http", "/system/http_proxy/host"},
    {"network.proxy.http_port", "/system/http_proxy/port"},
    {"network.proxy.ftp", "/system/proxy/ftp_host"},
    {"network.proxy.ftp_port", "/system/proxy/ftp_port"},
    {"network.proxy.ssl", "/system/proxy/secure_host"},
    {"network.proxy.ssl_port", "/system/proxy/secure_port"},
    {"network.proxy.socks", "/system/proxy/socks_host"},
    {"network.proxy.socks_port", "/system/proxy/socks_port"},
    {"network.proxy.no_proxies_on", "/system/proxy/ignore_hosts"},
    {"network.proxy.autoconfig_url", "/system/proxy/autoconfig_url"},
    {"network.proxy.type", "/system/proxy/mode"},
