If I disable the proxy, then I can connect to the IRC host. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Setup proxy 2. Start chatzilla 3. Try to connect to IRC host Actual Results: connection timed out error Expected Results: Connect to IRC. Or, an option on proxy page saying "ignore proxy settings for IRC" if there is such a thing as IRC proxy.
Do you have something in your socks proxy field ?
Yes. I copied the name of the proxy to all fields. Does filling in the socks proxy field then make chatzilla try to use that proxy? Is this bug just "user doesn't know what socks does"?
Sorry to add two comments, but I also was able to work around the bug (if now that is indeed what it is) by putting the IRC host into the "do not use proxy for..." entry widget.
Is this bug just "user doesn't know what socks does"? Yes :-) A socks proxy is different and can handle all kinds of connections. Mozilla Mailnews will also use a socks proxy if you enter something there. But you get connection Errors for all non http/https/ftp connections if your proxy is no socks proxy. We have a bug somewere to move the socks field in his own group. It will of course work if you put the host in the no-proxy list because Mozilla doesn't try to use a socks proxy for this connection -> invalid (and it will of course work
