Description of problem:
I have configured Konqueror to connect through a junkbuster proxy server at port
8000 which kills cookies and a selection of banner ads. After following
several links, konqueror loses knowledge of the proxy server and connects
directly. This becomes obvious when it asks me whether to allow new cookies
to be set and when it displays banner ads again. Junkbuster should have filtered
Proxy Config Script=
Entry0=*:Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/2.0; X11)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start konqueror
2. configure it to use a proxy server
3. open a few links in new windows (with middle mouse button e.g.)
4. verify whether it connects through the proxy
Actual Results: Konqueror suddenly sees cookies and banner ads again which the
proxy server (junkbuster-2.0.2-28 in my case) should have dropped. Makes me
believe it no longer has connected through the proxy server, but directly.
Expected Results: Konqueror should have connected through the proxy server.
This does not happen with Mozilla, Netscape Navigator, or Opera.
I don't think this problem still exists with a decent kdebase and privoxy.
I'm using this combination all the time without problems.
Yes, I have also test-drived privoxy a bit (even as a replacement on a Valhalla
machine) and can confirm that. Nevertheless, raises the question whether
junkbuster is broken (works flawlessly together with Mozilla) or konqueror?
