comment System proxy settings inaccessible by Java, Firefox, VMware Fusion, etc.?
I guess the strangest part to me is that Safari and Chrome are using the proxies, but Firefox, Java, and VMware don't, despite italic_seeming_italic to be set to use system proxy settings. The fact that they worked before but don't work now suggests that I shouldn't need to change settings for these specific applications, but instead that the programs can't find, open, or apply the settings for some reason.

Robin -- I'm configuring proxies as per IT recommendations at my company. These are probably correct (as I can load websites without the PAC file specified), but they may be redundant since I've specified the PAC file as well. Regarding specification of a proxy within Java, I haven't done this previously and I'm pretty sure it was working fine. I'd really like Java to use the system-wide settings, since I don't want to be changing the setting every time I leave or arrive at work.
