Yes, proxy setup for firefox has been broken for some time. But you still can setup proxy in firefox itself, Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Network -> Click on 'Settings...' button to configure how Firefox connects to the Internet.

Is it fixed now? I've had this problem yesterday.

I know but it's not the same. 
When you have several different network profiles (as in many laptop) it's very useful to set system proxy simply changing profile.

I just installed Rosa Desktop fresh and updated it.
Then I set manual proxy: it's still broken. Set proxy has no effect at all.

There are workaround, not a blocker anymore.

Denis, is the bug still active/known in upstream?

Which workaround?

Changing proxy settings in Firefox isn't a workaround. I have to change it in Thunderbird too. And in other packages that can use system proxy. This means repeat several time the same operation.

Allow changing system proxy means avoid repetition.

* Just tested the bug on GNOME Fresh R1 build 1524 — all OK with gnome-settings.

Minimal testcase:
* change global proxy settings
* open new term, and asc:
 echo $http_proxy

(no need to run firefox — firefox obeys enviromental variables  $http_proxy/$https_proxy).

How you did it? 



I just installed using ROSA.FRESH.KDE.R1.x86_64.iso then 

1) I open Configure your Desktop → Network and Connectivity → Network settings
2) on left side choose Proxy and I tried both options

2a) Use system proxy configuration → I set all proxy 
2b) Use manually specified proxy configuration → I set “http proxy” and checked “Use this proxy server for all protocols” 

but command  "echo $http_proxy" give no result.


I tried also ROSA.FRESH.KDE.R1.i586.iso with same result.
