Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_1) AppleWebKit/601.2.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/9.0.1 Safari/601.2.7

Steps to reproduce:

- Configured FF Developer edition to use a socks proxy (127.0.0.1:1080, ages ago)
- updated to 44.0a2 (2015-11-16)
- connected using ssh -D 1080 $server
- visit firefox.com
- disconnect ssh
- visit firefox.com still works



Actual results:

I could still connect to internet. It does not connect to internet on up-to-date normal Firefox.


Expected results:

It should just have failed.

I saw that bug but thought it might be different due to how I had things configured. I buy it's a dupe now that I read more of the commentary. Thanks.
