Good article.

The author mentions a bug:

"my only beef with Firefox is that it doesn't detect how you are connecting to the Internet and adjust its proxy settings accordingly, as IE does. For example, if you need to have a certain proxy setting when you connect to a business network, but normally don't use it for nonwork surfing, you must make the change manually"

Sounds like it might be the following bug:

"getting proxy server from windows internet options (separate for every connection)" (enh)

If that's not the same thing, we might need a new bug report for this.
