I am having the same issue after installing Firefox 4. Now I already knew how to turn the proxy off, but it isn't working. I turn it off and it works for a while, but as soon as I close and re-open it, I find it reverted to the proxy being set on (to localhost). There is no problem with any other program on my computer and this began as soon as I downloaded Firefox 4.
