Subject: mozilla: Won't take an IPv6 link-local address as a valid proxy address
Date: Mon, 27 Jan 2003 21:19:23 +0100
Package: mozilla
Version: 2:1.2.1-9
Severity: normal

Go to proxy settings. Put a link-local address literal (like
fe80::210:5aff:fe45:9b17%eth0) for http proxy. Mozilla thinks it is a
hostname to resolve, and not an address literal. Obviously, resolution
fails, and Mozilla says "www.debian.org could not be found. Please
check the name and try again", when trying the load
http://www.debian.org/ (for example).

Consequently, it is impossible to use a proxy listening over an IPv6
link-local address with Mozilla.

Could you check if this still occurs with iceape from etch or unstable ?

Thanks

Subject: iceape-browser 2.0.3-5 does not work for me
Date: Wed, 24 Mar 2010 11:11:57 -0400
Hi,

Just to add a data point.

Iceape-browser 2.0.3-5 doesn't seem to work for me in trying to use an
external IPv6 proxy. I tried various forms in the proxy setting, e.g.
xxxx:xxxx:..:xxxx and [xxxx:....:xxxx] and proxy.domain.name, and none
of them worked. If there is a special form for the address, then let me
know.

The browser works fine for IPv6 if set to not go through the proxy.
