In Firefox, I can set a proxy for all URLs except certain domains.

Is it possible to do the same with the http_proxy environmental variable?

That is, could I set another variable to exclude certain URL suffixes?

If by "URL suffixes" you mean certain domain names then you could try setting no_proxy variable.

export no_proxy="domain1.tld,domain2.tld,domain3.tld"
