This way user would know all the time if PROXY is being used or not. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

REOPEN to dpeends, to prevent recuring FF->MZ dupes.
I would really really appreciate this. If not the display text, then perhaps a small icon in the corner? Having either or even both would cut down on a lot of headaches I've had from setting proxies and forgetting about them later.
