we need to allow users to configure proxy setting for downloading xpi files.
setting target mileston to M16.

Wouldn't this apply to all platforms that are going to have an installer, not just windows? If the installer is unable to connect directly to the Internet there should be a mechanism for the installer to get the proxy settings from IE or a previous Netscape installation, although the ability to specify proxy settings manually must always be made available.

fixed. The Proxy Settings is now offered in the Advanced Settings dialog. There is an Advanced Settings button in the last dialog that will show the Advanced Settings dialog. The button is *only* shown if a download is required. This means that the mozilla builds will not see this fix, only commercial builds. To test the proxy settings option, use: Server: chainsaw.mcom.com port: 8288 I think that the speed is only 56.7k (definitely something really slow). This will let you know that it is working, but it will take a very long time to download the bits.
