We had some changes in the pac handling, does it still happen with Firefox18beta or later builds ?
I can't test it due to Bug 723487: XPCOMGlueLoad error for file ...firefox-18.0b6/firefox/libxpcom.so: libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM. Nonetheless I would like to test the changes. Which commits/bugs implement them?
A possible incomplete query http://bit.ly/Vu0WIe One rason why this bug report didn't get much attention is that it got never moved into the right component....

great, marking wfm Thanks for your response, the testing and the bug report.
The issue is back again in the 17.0.6esr version not only on FTP but also on HTTP and HTTPS. (was never fixed in 10esr or 17esr) firefox-20.0a1-2013-01-11 does not show any of these issues.
