Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0
Build ID: 20150917150946

Steps to reproduce:

1. In Android’s Wi-Fi settings, select your SSID, and configure a PAC address. The address must be a server on the local network that resolves in DNS but does not answer to connections on port 8 (no web server running).
2. Open Firefox


Actual results:

Infinite crash loop.


Expected results:

Should have either 1) informed the user that the proxy is not accepting connections or 2) skipped the proxy altogether (though has some usability issue for services only available behind a proxy).
