Safari not working with OS 10.9 and a proxy server

Hi,
I have upgraded a Mac Book pro to OS 10.9. The device is used on a network which has a proxy server in place.  Before the upgrade to 10.9 Safari worked fine and all other  Macs running 10.8 or less (about 200 of them) work OK.  Since carrying out the upgrade Safari does not connect, it just hangs with no error messages. I have loaded Chrome and using the same proxy settings that are in Safari it works fine.  Is this an Apple 10.9 bug?

Cheers

I don't know if it is a bug or a "feature" of the new OSX 10.9 but I've had a few issues with Safari since upgrading.  I have a java applet that worked fine in 10.8 but simply fails to work on 10.9 .. just times out.  I had to switch to Firefox to use the applet.

I think that Apple introduced additional sandboxing (as in iOS) to Apple applications in 10.9 and it has had several un-intended consequences.

OSX 10.9.1 is due fairly soon and might address some issues but there is no guarantee.
You might open a query on the support pages for Safari and see if you get any other comments
