I get a "unable to find the proxy server" when trying to access http (non-https) sites. Help! I need to use my proxy server..

Posted

I cannot connect to http sites when using my proxy. This just happened over the last three or four days. I have updated to the most current Firefox and am using a MacBook Pro. I have to use my proxy.
