Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20151103030248

Steps to reproduce:

1. Use a SOCKS proxy in the proxy settings with remote DNS (Manual proxy configuration)
2. Stop the proxy after loading some page.
3. Open another URL.
4. The proxy server is refusing connections message is shown.
5. Reload the URL again.


Actual results:

Browser connects to the URL directly.


Expected results:

As proxy config is manual, it should not use direct connection. This has privacy concerns.
