Description Luca Foppiano 2008-07-04 07:04:30 UTC
Description of problem:
When I set a proxy in network proxy preferences and I set https proxy or I
toggle the checkbox "use the same proxy for all protocols", system set the
environment variable http_proxy but not https_proxy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Just set proxy for all protocol, open a shell and type "env | grep proxy", you
should got only http_proxy and no_proxy environment variables.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set proxy in "network proxy preferences" (set also https proxy or check the
"use the same proxy for all protocols")
2. open a terminal
3. type "env | grep proxy"
Actual results:
you get only http_proxy and no_proxy environment variables

Expected results:
you should get also https_proxy

Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2008-07-04 14:30:33 UTC
It can't, because you can't change the envvar of already started shells. So
changing the proxy settings wouldn't change the proxy settings of already
started applications/shells.
