Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:5.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0.1
Build ID: 20110707182747

Steps to reproduce:

Enabled 'Auto Proxy Discovery' in the relevant Network port. Firefox set to use system settings.


Actual results:

Safari and some other web-based tools work correct using the WPAD script. Firefox 5.0 does not appear to properly support this setting on Mac. It works correctly on Windows clients on the same network.


Expected results:

Firefox should have seen that the system settings were set for Auto Proxy Discovery and used the settings brought in from that. Firefox on Mac should have behaved exactly the same as it does on Windows.
