Mozilla auto configure ignored proxy hosts
Posted on 2011-05-09
Hi there Experts,
I am having some issues with a mozilla client configuration. Basically in this office there are a dozen or so internal resources that we need to access (all on the 10.0.0.0 subnet) all of which have their own names so you know "intranet" or "nvision" that kind of thing.
On top of that, because I am a developer I also have a considerable amount of host entries for local sites that I might be developing so say "my.projectname.localhost" or something like that (but not all are formatted like that)
Now what's irritating me at the minute is that for every new site I have to go into mozilla's network config and add an ignored host entry which get's a little tedious after a while.
Is there a way of getting mozilla to bypass the proxy for any addresses that can be found in the hosts file without having to manually add them all?
I know that I can use wildcards in the matching of what I deem to be a "local" address but even that requires some setup time and frankly is more than I can be bothered with!
(by the way using Ubuntu 11.04 and firefox 4.0.1)
