I have Firefox 15.0.1 and IE 6.0. Firefox is in "Use system proxy settings" configuration. Sometimes I use proxy. But when I disable proxy in IE, Firefox still download through proxy. Seems he does not check parameter ProxyEnable in "HCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" . IE does not erase parameters "ProxyServer" in the same branch of registry and Firefox still use it.
Probably already fixed with bug 771115 Reporter: Did this work with Firefox14 ?

I dont know how work Firefox 14. Now I use latest version - 44.0.2 - an all work perfectly. If you can send me a link to FF 14 portable version - I can try to check. :)
Found Firefox 14 and 15. tested : 1) change proxy in IE. Firefox sees the change and is working correctly. 2) change proxy directly in registry. Same effect - Firefox working correctly. But - difference between 2012 and 2016 : 2012 - Windows XP SP2 and IE 6 2016 - Windows XP SP3 and IE 8 Maybe these changes affected the result.
