Despite of correct both environment and dconf settings, neither Chromium nor Chrome browser can't access the internet. Is there any workaround?

I've found that command line proxy parameter helps in this issue, e.g. google-chrome --proxy-server="myproxy.net:3128"

Another way to enable proxy: install Proxy Switchy Chrome Extension and create new profile with your proxy settings.
But it's still a workaround.

Now (after several daily updates?) Chrome and Firefox do work with system proxy settings.
