I'm setting up addon installation through `policy.json`. Below is an example. I am wondering howto configure addons thus installed using the same file. Is it possible? If yes: where to find addon-specific keys/options? As an example: when providing below `policy.json`, starting any fresh firefox profile/installation produces the dialog "Startpage.com - Private Search Engine would like to change your default search engine from Google to Startpage.com - English. Is that OK?", followed by yes/no buttons. I would like to be able to just make the addon do so forgoing the dialog.

Thanks for any pointers.

Automatic redirect in pac files doesn't work

Hello,

I have a problem with a pac file in our org. We download it from a server. The basic functionality is applied and it does redirect the desired traffic to the proxy. The problem occurs when the proxy goes down, it then should automaticaly start making direct connections, but the connections fail. We want to proxy only http and https and event that with some exceptions.

It was done according to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Proxy_servers_and_tunneling/Proxy_Auto-Configuration_PAC_file#example_6

Is there any problem with PAC file or does the browser have issues with the config?

Thanks for any help.

function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {

   /* Our proxy list */
   OURPROXY = "PROXY 172.22.59.X:3128; DIRECT"
   INOUR = "ourgroup.internal"
   /* Normalize the URL and HOST for pattern matching */
   url = url.toLowerCase();
   host = host.toLowerCase();
   /* Our Network Entry */
   if (isResolvable(INOUR)) {
       /* Don't proxy local services */
       if (isInNet(host, "10.0.0.0", "255.0.0.0")
       ) {
           return "DIRECT";
       }
       /* Proxy only http & https */
       if (url.substring(0, 5) == "http:" || url.substring(0, 6) == "https:") {
           /* Don't proxy local hostnames (without dots) */
           if (isPlainHostName(host)) {
               return "DIRECT";
           }
           /* END: Don't proxy local hostnames */
           /* START: Internal systems */
           if (shExpMatch(host, "*.example.com") ||
               shExpMatch(host, "example.com") ||
               /* END: Internal systems */
               /* START: Split VPN tunnel */
               shExpMatch(host, "*.example2.com") ||
               shExpMatch(host, "example2.com") ||
               /* END: Split VPN tunnel */
           ) {
               return "DIRECT";
           }
           /* END: Don't proxy to internal systems */
           return OURPROXY;
       } else {
         return "DIRECT";
       }
       /* END: Proxy only http & https */
   } else {
     return "DIRECT";
   }
   /* END: Our Network Entry */
   return "DIRECT";
