If I hibernate Windows and resume Firefox doesn't find web pages until i go to options, network, settings, and change the way it finds proxies and back
I usually hibernate windows and then resume each day. If a Firefox session is open it can no longer connect after I resume. I have found that if I go to Tools --> Options --> Network --> Settings and change the proxy setting to "use system proxy settings" and apply and then do exactly the same thing but instead pick "auto-detect proxy settings" and apply, then Firefox works. So it seems like Firefox in some ways remembers the old proxy settings but they changed from when I hibernated to when I resumed and Firefox can't figure this out without my help. Other browsers don't have this problem, so it seems like a bug in Firefox. Am I missing something here?

Please update to 18.0.1, we've improved proxy support in the latest version.
Many thanks. I will try it and let you know. I won't know until tomorrow. I have to hibernate here and un hibernate later, which in this case will be tomorrow.
