Description John Poelstra 2004-10-06 15:01:51 EDT
Description of problem:
I was trying to use Epiphany with an http proxy by setting the proxy
entry under: gnome/preferences/network proxy.  

I have two problems with this:

(1) There was no place to add exceptions to the proxy (e.g.
redhat.com).  Every web browser I have ever used has given me the
ability to add exceptions.

Admittedly a user could tweak the setting in about:config, but I think
that is asking too much of a regular desktop user, particularly when
other browsers have a simple box to enter proxy exceptions.

(2) The mainline web browsers all have options to set proxy settings
*in the browswer itself* and not in some other place (e.g.
gnome-network-proxy).  It's not intuitive. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open preferences/network proxy

The normal way to do this is with a .PAC file.  I guess the gnome
settings don't support that, kind of hobbling the ability to use a
proxy effectively.

GNOME settings support PAC files.
