Configuring Mozilla Firefox Proxy Settings

By default Mozilla Firefox uses the same proxy settings as set in Internet Explorer.  If you wish to explicitly set the proxy server in Firefox then follow the steps below.

 Setting the Proxy

  1. Open the Firefox Menu and select Options

  2. In the Options window click on the Advanced icon

  3. Select the Network Tab

  4. In the Connection section click the Settings button

  5.  In the Connection Settings window select 'Automatic proxy configuration URL' and enter the address

  6. Close the Connection Settings and Options windows by clicking on the OK button

When you have finished, if you no longer wish your internet connection to go via Aston’s proxy, you should reset to a normal Internet connection by selecting 'No proxy' or 'Use system proxy settings' to use the proxy settings in Internet Explorer
