User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050816 Firefox/1.0+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050816 Firefox/1.0+ When any character is typed into the automatic proxy configuration url textbox, the textbox tries to help by autofilling the http:// protocol, except it gets it wrong, and the resulting mess can't be deleted with backspace. Reproduced on XP/WS2003 on nightly builds as well as Mac OSX. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open connection settings in preferences 2. Select "automatic proxy configuration url" 3. Type (for example) the letter "s" in the textbox Actual Results: The textbox contains http://s/ and backspace has no effect on the value. The string can be selected and deleted or pasted over, although the autofill happens every time a charatcer is typed in the empty textbox. Expected Results: It's OK to autofill the http: I suppose, although it's not ideal. Is http the only supported protocol for .pac files? How about prefixing the url with http internally if no protocol is specified but letting the UI display the partial address the user entered? Workaround - paste in the URL of the .pac file.
