I'm using my private proxy for YouTube through local wpad.dat file. Other applications work without any problems.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test it on a currently supported Ubuntu version. When you test it and it is still an issue, kindly upload the updated logs by running apport-collect <bug #> and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.

Whenever I enable automatic proxy configuration in Gnome Settings providing a link to wpad.dat, Rhythmbox fails to connect to external resources. It says it cannot resolve target hostnames. Other applications like firefox work fine.
For example Last.FM plugin says: Cannot resolve hostname (turtle.libre.fm)
If I switch proxy mode to manual and configure proxy's hostname and port Rhythmbox work fine.
Unfortunately manual mode is not applicable for me, as there is no way to configure "no-proxy" exceptions
I believe the bug is still there

If anyone still sees an issue using a maintained version of Ubuntu please let us know otherwise this report can be left to expire in approximately 60 days time.
