User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040831 Firefox/0.9.1+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040831 Firefox/0.9.1+

When we change the proxy mode setting like direct connection,proxy or auto-proxy
in gnome-network-preferences, it doesn't gets changed in the the Firefox
preference setting. Whereas other setting like proxy etc works fine. This is in
continuation to bug #202388.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open gnome-network-preferences and set  the proxy mode to direct connection
2.Open Mozilla proxy setting to look for change
3.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla proxy setting doen't change when the gnome-network-preferences proxy
setting is changed

Expected Results:  
Mozilla preferences should also reflect the setting as gnome-network-preferences.

I tried adding "network.proxy.mode", "/system/proxy/mode" to gconf_pref_list.inc
file and changed the nsSystemPref.cpp by adding network.proxy.mode to
sSysPrefList  array. It did not work.
You have set config.use_system_prefs to true, right?
