Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser


- in system->proxy settings, configure a socks5 proxy on localhost:1080
- surf with epiphany

this shouldn't work unless you have a socks5 proxy installed. This means that
- ssh -D 1080 <email address hidden>

should make epiphany able to access the net over the proxy.

this does work in firefox properly and did work in earlier versions of epiphany, but was lost after the switch from gecko to webkit.

upstream claims this to be fixed, but I'm still experiencing it in lucid. what is the 'soup proxy resolver', what is 'libproxy', how do they relate and do we use that in lucid as well?

No further comments for almost 7 years so I'm closing this as fixed
