It appears in my haste to push out the new version, I overlooked an issue in the testing process with the “Open Browser Proxy Settings” button that was added. As this opens a Firefox preferences window, I glossed over this during testing, and assumed that it worked the same as it does in Firefox, although due to a few reports I’m getting from users, and testing done myself, it appears that editing information in the window created doesn’t get saved. I’m currently working on resolving this issue, and I hope to have a resolution to this quickly, but as it’s a native Firefox window I may need to just re-create the entire preferences screen.
Thank you all for the feedback I’ve received on the extension so far. Apart from these annoying bugs that somehow keep finding their way in it’s been a very positive experience for me.
I’ve now added contact forms to both QuickProxy and AusKreedz pages. This will allow users of either to easily get in touch with me directly, to provide either feedback or bug reports/issues. I much prefer this over advertising my email address (which is different for both projects, allowing me to differentiate between the issues), as no matter how much you try to obscure the address it always seems to get farmed using some method and then passed onto whichever mailing lists. Google does have a fantastic spam filter, which does filter most of this out, but anything that I can do to minimize this is great. =)
The latest version of QuickProxy has now been approved by the Mozilla addon editors, and is now available publically for download on their site here. This release will hopefully be well met by users, as the main reason why I pressed so hard for this to be released was due to a fix with the automatic behaviour of the extension.
