This is sweet -- I can use the same proxy.pac I've used for years. However, the first few times I entered the url (a file:/.... url, in my case), I got no response (no error message, nor a confirmation that it had been loaded). Once I finally got my fat fingers working, the proper url resulted in the proxy.pac going into effect (again, silently). It'd be nice if an error were reported if the url is invalid or 404s, and a confirmation reported when successfully loaded. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Preferences > General 2. select "Connection Settings" button. 3. select the last option ("automatic ...") 4. enter an invalid or nonexistant url Actual Results: nothing apparent Expected Results: display a "oops, couldn't load it" dialog Firebird rocks.

Grrr, sorry for the dup. I know I searched for terms like "auto proxy configuration" and "proxy.pac", and nothing showed up. Maybe search was wacky? Sorry.
I used "Pac URL" as search terms :-)
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
Summary: invalid proxy configuration url silently ignored → PAC: invalid url silently ignored
