HTTP(S) proxy leaks DNS requests
I'm using a local DNS caching server called pdnsd to speed up my browsing and block unwanted sites like google, twitter, co. However, if I set up a HTTP and HTTPS proxy in Firefox blocked sites get accessible again, meaning Firefox does resolve DNS requests through those proxies.
"Remote DNS" is unchecked, it's the same behavior in normal mode with all my add-ons enabled, FoxyProxy en- or disabled and in safe mode, meaning this problem belongs to Firefox.
Any help would be appreciated as I dependent on my proxy sometimes, but DNS leaking makes this impossible for now.
