Mozilla version 1.4 does not accept manuall proxy configuration! I installed
(now) ver. 1.4 over the ver. 1.3, (uninstall and then install J) and this new
ver. 1.4 does direct connection to the internet, even though I have not direct
connection, but I do connection via proxy server (Settings are good, I have
manual proxy configuration, but it does not work).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uninstalling Mozilla 1.3
2. Installing Mozilla 1.4
3. Mozilla does not accept manuall proxy configuration.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla does connection via direct connection to the Internet, and I have not
direct connection to the Internet

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should accept configuratio option.

After reinstalling the older version (1.3) over the new version (1.4) – it
(Mozilla ver. 1.3) works correctly. 
Summary: Mozilla version 1.4 does not accept proxy configuration! → Mozilla version 1.4 does not accept proxy configuration!

HTTP Debugging log file

This is a HTTP debug log, as proposed in
I´ve used Mozilla Firebird 0.6 instead of Mozilla 1.4, the error seems to be
the same. Proxy server is squid/2.5.STABLE2 (acording to the log file)
The log file contains 5 http request, the first one with no autentication, the
following 2 - i suppose - with wrong autorization user/pass (when mozilla
promptly showed proxy password dialog again), and the final 2 with the correct
user/pass. After putting the right user/pass Mozilla stopped showing the dialog
but i cound not access the initial page (

Reporter, we can't do anything without more information, like the log provided
by Telmo. What's so special about your proxy-server ? Does it use authentication ? 

PS : manual proxy-authentication works fine for me.

... and what do you need from me? I am not server specialist.

... manual proxy configuration does not work still.
but (I do not why) Automatic proxy configuration via URL work correct.

Please, send me "manual" or "guide" - What should I do to help You (us)?

You can generate a log file with the instructions at , and attach it
to this bug.

Since you mention that a PAC file works (auto proxy configuration), please
provide this logging too (and the PAC file), then we can compare. I think you
made a simple configuration error (different hostname or port for example).
There's no real difference between auto and manual configuration, aside from
possible syntax errors in the PAC file.

Dear Mr. Jo Hermans, I sent you e-mail with three files.
2xLogfiles and 1xPAC file.

I hope it is sufficient information.

Please don't mail any files, I'm not using a real email-address here (if I
didn't came here by accident, I would have never seen it). Attach the files to
this bug instead.

one more thing: this problem doesn´t happen on Linux
and i´ve tested firebird 0.7 on windows and it has the same problem
-> wfm

Delete c:\program Files\ and c:\Program Files\common files\Mozilla
and reinstall Mozilla if you still see the problem.
