After some change of proxy setting through menu edit->preferences,the later any changing about proxy setting can't make effect,it still maintain the old setting.I forget how I make Mozilla enter this status,but the probleam can arise repeatedly through edit the file "C:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/Application Data/Mozilla/Profiles/default/l7rh9q2h.slt/pres.js". When in worng status,The proxy setting in "pres.js" is: ... ... user_pref("network.cookie.cookieBehavior", 0); user_pref("network.ftp.anonymous_password", ""); user_pref("network.proxy.ftp", "192.168.3.9"); user_pref("network.proxy.ftp_port", 8080); user_pref("network.proxy.http", "192.168.3.9"); user_pref("network.proxy.http_port", 8080); user_pref("network.proxy.socks", "192.168.3.59"); user_pref("network.proxy.socks_port", 1080); user_pref("network.proxy.socks_version", 0); ... ... Delete the last 3 line ,Mozilla will work correct.
You mean. after changing the values, in the proxy prefs UI, going back doesn't show the changes?
Confirming. The prefs do not get saved, as long as the last line remains user_pref("network.proxy.socks_version", 0); If the last line is deleted, or changed to user_pref("network.proxy.socks_version", 4); then the prefs get saved.

-> networking, no proof this is a backend bug. +clean-report Chen Huajun: did you get that value set to zero by using the prefs UI, or by hacking the prefs.js file by hand? I suggest you read: http://www.mozilla.org/catalog/end-user/customizing/briefprefs.html

I just use the prefs UI
You initial description suggested you were editing prefs.js. You should edit user.js instead (it will avoid possible problems like this). Maybe we need some better checking for the version number?
