Description

On Windows, when the settings are set to "Use system proxy settings" and the Windows system settings are set to "Automatically detect settings" the expectation is that we would auto detect a WPAD URL. We don't do this, and there are security concerns, expressed in Bug 621429, against implementing this. 

Firefox should note in the UI that we don't honor this one setting.
