Proxy settings location for Firefox, Opera, Konqueror browsers
Could someone clarify how Linux [say FC5/6] controls proxy settings. For example, Skype for Linux automatically looks for proxy settings from your Opera config files. You may also set the environment variables "http_proxy" or "https_proxy" (note the lowercase) to point to your HTTP(S) proxy ("host-port").
If I use another browser instead of Firefox, say Opera or Konqueror and set my proxy settings in Firefox, are these setting updating the SAME global proxy settings configuration location which is used by Firefox and will those programs like Skype which specify that they will use browser proxy settings pick up the settings I set using Firefox?
Does anyone know how to change the settings of these proxy settings programatically? If you have any such script
