Running Windows XP SP2 all update changes along with Mafee Interent security 7.0
suite with Direcway satellite ISP (NAT) connection using a always on usb modem.
Under preferences , advanced, proxy:

preferences change from proxy  Http  setting being  Direct connection to
internet to HTTP proxy 127.0.01 port 83 no proxy for local host 127.0.1
only indication user gets that setting has changed is when loading a web page
and can't open any web pages .  upon opening preferences see setting as proxy
HTTP: 127.0.1 port 83 instead of direct connection to internet.  Upon changing
setting back manually to direct connection to internet web pages open no problem
till next time this happens.  There is no pattern to when this hapens that i can
track it down to a source although it does repeatedly change no matter how many
times I set it back to correct settings.  Best I can figure program doesn't seem
to to be able to maintain settings selected.   

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. changed setting for proxy to direct connection
2.exited preferences
3. opened web page
Actual Results:  
program worked web page opened,  however i could not force the program to change
settings as reported above under details myself, but it does change on its own
without operator intervention. if I change the setting to proxy and manually
configure to 127.0.1 get same indications as when program does this itself. but
can't reporduce changing settings by operator action to duplicte problem

Expected Results:  
settings remained what was set not shift back and forth.  

because there is no consistent time span or specific web page that this does it
with unable to track down source.  Maybe a unique situation with Satellite
internet connections based on NAT address. (no static ip address) like on DSL or
a cable connection. 

only suggestion is make a save feature button that saves the connction settings
under preferences.
