I've just installed Ubuntu on a desktop at work. All traffic flows through a proxy. For some reason Firefox works fine with the set proxy, but nothing else.
I checked the terminal with: set | grep -i proxy
and I saw that all my proxies have an extra http:// or https:// in there. How do I get rid of it. I entered my proxy as www-abc.company.com:12345. No idea where the extra http: could be coming from.
