Hello, I am using an AutoConfig setup to specify proxy settings for the browser. I can see that the AutoConfig file is being read and the proxy settings are being set. However they don't appear to be applied to the browsing session. I can get them to apply by going to settings, searching for proxy, clicking the network settings, then clicking OK (without modifying any of the settings) The proxy then works. My question is: why do I, as a user, have to interact with the proxy settings for them to be used even though they are set? I am running Firefox ESR 102.9 on Rocky Linux 8.7
Thank you Matt

What pref settings are you using in the autoconfig file ?
I am using lockpref lockPref("network.proxy.type", 1); lockPref("network.proxy.http", "proxy_url"); lockPref("network.proxy.http_port", port); lockPref("network.proxy.share_proxy_settings", true); lockPref("network.proxy.no_proxies_on");
Anyone have any ideas why the settings aren't being applied even though they are set?
You can try to use the proxy policy via policies.json as that policy support those network.proxy prefs.
