Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.In the preferences:general dialog, go to connection settings 2.Choose "manual proxy configuration" 3.Enter a proxy's IP and the port 4.Say "OK" and close the preferences Actual Results: Nothing. That is the problem. When I re-opened the dialog, the port was 0 again, not 8118 as wished. Expected Results: It should have kept the port as 8118 and then allowed me to use the proxy. I did change my widgets with "Firefoxy", but that only changes the images in there. I could get it to work by changing the options in about:config, but normal users would probably appreciate using a preferences dialog.

This happens when instant apply is on, which means it isn't (probably) mac-specific.

hmm, this isn't 100% reproduceable...
(In reply to comment #4) > hmm, this isn't 100% reproduceable... I was using a nightly build from March 8th. I am gonna try today's and see how that is.
I can't reproduce in trunk win32 (April 02 build) with instantApply on.
I can't reproduce it anymore (20050507).
