proxy settings always default to manual and wont open web pages or connect to internet - when I try to change the settings to 'no proxy' via tools/options/advanced/network/settings - Firefox will open one web page - if I try to open another web page in a new tab - error occurs and cant connect message due to proxy settings appears - if I close the session and open a new one, same result and I have to change proxy settings for each site I visit - annoying - so how do I fix this please?
