User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.8; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20130326150557

Steps to reproduce:

have a PPTP VPN profile that sets an autoproxy, connected to VPN, 
OS X 10.8.3+ same problem exists.



Actual results:

firefox could not connect to any websites internal or external, tried restarting.
if i manually tell it to use the same proxy set in the VPN config, it connects to websites fine.
Safari works with no extra help.


Expected results:

it should pay attn to the proxy settings.
