Proxy not changed in Firefox
« on: December 16, 2010, 08:00:08 PM »
The problem is that whenever I change proxy in firefox with SPC - it shows that it has changed, but if I refresh for example whatismyip.com then the IP stays the same it was before.
I have disabled caching, caching to disk and caching to memory, but still all new proxy become active only after some while and it refreshes as it is supposed to be.
Restarting firefox works ofcourse, but that's not the solution I'm searching.
I want to get the new IP as soon as I set the new IP and refresh it, not wait like 30 seconds (I dunno the time) and then the refresh works.
Overall SPC would be insanely perfect software if there wouldn't be this problem...;(

Did you see the proxy changed in the right-bottom of Firefox?
If not, you can close your Firewall and try again. Thanks.

Ofcourse I did see it updated in that corner and in SPC too, but the problem is that firefox doesn't take it in effect right away or is there some kind of other caching? Cause as I said previously I have disabled disk,memory and overall caching.

The right bottom add-on shows the current active proxy of Firefox.
It shows the same proxy as the one in the Firefox "Connection Settings" dialog:

Omfg do you really think I am completely stupid or what?
Read what I'm writing and then find a problem either in firefox or your software, my freaking gosh...
Do you really want me to make a video of how the proxy is not being updated right away in firefox even if it's shown that it has changed in firefox and spc and all the cache has been disabled firefox?
Btw I already tried using whatismyip and ur site for seeing if IP has changed, but neither of ANY these and any other show it updated.

Thanks for your video. It shows the problem clearly.
Did you see the old proxy or the new proxy in Firefox "Connection Settings" dialog after you changed the proxy?

If the new proxy is there, it's the problem of Firefox. If the old proxy is there, it's the problem of SPC.
