More info: the new GUI doesn't correctly toggle gconf/system/http_proxy/use_http_proxy to true when only a socks server is specified. Without this, neither Chrome nor Firefox will attempt to tunnel through socks. As a workaround, set this value manually using gconf-editor. Also the ignored hosts list is very useful for users on corporate networks where they do need some internal resources. It should be included.
