  • Firefox 4: fixed translucent context-menus.
  • Added "Use Selected For All URLs" proxy context-menu item. Requested here.

  • Improved support for Firefox 4 beta. Known bug: context-menus are translucent on Windows 7.
  • Fix for Tools menu indent problem on Windows - thanks Nils Maier of DownThemAll!
  • Changing statusbar default display. Previously, the statusbar displayed (by default) "FoxyProxy: " as well as the FoxyProxy icon. Since color-per-proxy was introduced, it doesn't make much sense to keep the "FoxyProxy: " text there by default. Mode can be inferred from icon color. Moreover, many addons are trying to minimize their statusbar footprint these days. It makes sense to remove this default option. The new default is to display just the FoxyProxy icon. You can restore the text by clicking Ctrl+F2 then Global Settings tab-> Indicators->Show mode (text) on statusbar. This does not affect upgraded installations; only new installations.
  • Changed references of foxyproxy.mozdev.org to getfoxyproxy.org

  • Locale updates, including the newly added Latvian translation
  • Removed extraneous stdout messages that got included in 2.21.3 (or so)
  • Version bumps; officially dropping support for Firefox 3.0.x -- I'll see if I can bring it back later. The previous FoxyProxy Standard release (2.21.4) doesn't work with Firefox 3.0 already due to the Firefox 4.0 porting efforts. Unfortunately, that release wasn't labeled as such so Firefox 3.0 users were automatically upgraded.
  • Credit to OCS in the about box

New in version 2.21.4 (August 21st, 2010)

  • Now compatible with Firefox 4

  • Locale updates
  • Version bumps for Firefox

New in version 2.18.1 (January 29th, 2010)

  • Fixed "all proxies" enabled at startup" bug discussed at http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/drupal/content/all-proxies-enabled-startup-doesnt-remember-preference
  • Hidden setting for not disabling a proxy in FoxyProxy when its PAC file can't load. To use: close firefox. In foxyproxy.xml, change the new "disableOnBadPAC" attribute from its default of "true" to "false". This can be set on a per-proxy basis so you will see "disableOnBadPAC" listed more than once.
  • Locale updates

  • Fixed ever-increasing main window size problem

  • Minor Add/Edit Proxy dialog bug fix
  • Animated FoxyProxy icon in About box (Thanks, Jesper!)

  • Work towards re-enable proxies disabled by missing PAC but feature is not yet complete.
  • Width and height of main options dialog and proxy settings dialog remembered between opening/closing
  • Fixed bug which prevented the proper display of an error message to the user if he was using a PAC with a syntax error or other problems.
  • Discussed here.
  • Proxy DNS column added to Proxies list in the main window and ChooseProxy window (displayed with Alt+F3)
  • Default display columns for new installations is now:
  • Proxy list:
  • Enabled
  • Color
  • Proxy Name
  • Proxy Notes
  • URLS Patterns list:
  • Enabled
  • Pattern Name
  • URL pattern
  • Whitelist/Blacklist
  • Logging list:
  • Timestamp
  • Color
  • Proxy Name
  • URL
  • Pattern Name
  • All other columns are still available but must be enabled explictly. The point is to enable less clutter
  • by hiding by default lesser-important columns.
  • Tor wizard now uses remote DNS lookup by default instead of prompting the user
  • Warning about using parentheses without a backslash in patterns. Since backreferences aren't relevant in FoxyProxy, there's no point in using parentheses without matching them literally.

  • Removed useless "mode" column in options dialog tree view
  • New proxy names default to host/ip address (if one was entered), otherwise they default back to the original "New Proxy" name. Requested here:
  • http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/drupal/content/default-nameip-comment-hint

  • http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/drupal/content/default-nameip-comment-hint
  • better debugging for failed proxy filtering (as requested somewhere in the forums)
  • differentiation between FoxyProxy Basic and FoxyProxy Plus in labels within the application. Previously, such labels just said "FoxyProxy" instead of "FoxyProxy Basic" or "FoxyProxy Standard". This makes it clearer to the user which edition he's using, hopefully making support easier.
  • Support for closing FoxyProxy dialogs/windows on OS/X with Command-W
  • removed extraneous dump() statements

Use of an absolute filename resulted in FoxyProxy settings not persisting (without a LOT of manual work) when moving Firefox profiles to another computer, restoration of Firefox profile backups to another hard drive, sharing of Firefox profiles across multi-boot computers (roaming profile), and when restoring profile backups using tools like FEBE, MozBackup, etc.
