Firefox 4.0.1 is ignoring proxy settings

After installing the 4.0.1 update to Firefox on my Windows XP machine, it no longer abides by the manual proxy settings. There are 2 proxies here, x.x.x.1 and x.x.x.2, and Firefox is configured to use the second proxy. However, while browsing, filter messages are coming from the first proxy, and a look at the proxy logs show me using the first proxy, instead of the second.

I disabled all addons and themes, but the problem is still there. I reconfigured IE8 to use the second proxy, which it did so without any issues. Is this a bug in the latest patch, or am I missing something?
