I maybe tired and there might be something obvious I’ve missed but I note Firefox updated to now v49.0 (Linux Mint 17.3), and I’m now struggling with basic connection via proxy in Alpha. I saw the same on TEST9 in a different PC and thought that must have been a deliberate change to encourage beaker… now I wonder it’s something else.
I don’t mind as I do think use of beaker is the way to go but just noting this, in case there’s an issue that will throw a curve to those following the maidsafe.readme.io/docs/proxy-setup
I’ve done all the obvious checking of Firefox and Network Proxy settings and both looked good for the .pac. Beaker works fine, yet Firefox via proxy doesn’t connect.
