Configuring Mozilla Firefox

Unfortunately Firefox doesn't automatically detect our proxy settings by default. This means it won't work unless you explicitly configure it to detect our proxies. To do this:

  •  Open Firefox (by double-clicking on the Firefox icon)
  • From the Tools menu, select Options
  • Click on the Advanced tab on the top right-hand corner
  • Click on the Network tab below that
  • Then click on the Settings... button under Connection
  • Choose the Automatic proxy configuration URL option
  • Type http://wpad.ru.ac.za/ into the box below this
  • Click on OK to close the Connection Settings Window, and OK to close the Options window.
