Description

16 years ago
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:

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?
