Try setting the network.captive-portal-service.enabled preference to false using the Configuration Editor for Firefox (about:config).

Hope this helps.

Do you still have the issue if you change your proxy setting from Auto-detect proxy settings for this network to No proxy? Unless you need the proxy.

Do you still have the issue if you change your proxy setting from '''Auto-detect proxy settings for this network''' to '''No proxy'''? Unless you need the proxy.

Does disabling your anti-virus software and firewall help? There seems to be certain internet security programs that cause this issue.

Is Internet Explorer set to auto-detect the proxy? It seems like maybe Firefox assumes there is no system proxy if IE is set to auto-detect (see bug 621429).

You are probably experiencing the issue that I've already linked in my above reply. If the Internet Explorer settings are set to auto-detect, it appears that some people have problems with Firefox not detecting a proxy.

Kindly suggest what is the setting we need to set in firefox to be work if the proxy is Auto-detect in IE.

Issue is only in Citrix environment when users connect via Citrix.

It's an active bug (see bug 621429), so I don't believe there's anything you can do on your configuration to fix it.

You need to use the Auto-detect proxy settings for this network instead of the Use system proxy settings options. According to the bug report, that should work.
