I have a problem with proxies: I can not turn off proxy settings completely either in Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 3 or Firefox 3.5
I used to use FoxyProxy for switching between proxies in firefox and I switched them manually in IE. However, I noticed that whenever I switched them off completely that I still went via proxy.
I have already de-installed and re-installed Firefox. I have de-installed FoxyProxy completely. I have set proxy settings manually and then manually deleted them. I have checked in both the registry (for IE) and the prefs.js (for Firefox) and found no settings for a proxy.
I have also tried using a browser in a vmware image. I used a bridged network access and strangely, there I can access the web without the 'hidden' proxy.
Is there any other place I could look for hidden and global proxy settings that do not affect the vmware bridge?
Thanks in advance!
