I like this addon at least because I can combine our proxy.pac maintained by our network administrators with an explicit proxy (e.g. a connection to a private sub-network with limited access) plus direct connection (e.g. connection to a private sub-net with unlimited access). But I still see some possible improvements:
1) last time it happened to me, that the proxy.pac script was inaccessible and because of it I had no access to the most of the network (no restart of FF in the meantime). The only possible solution was to temporary disable the default proxy (proxy.pac) and use an explicit one. I think that the proxy.pac should be cached somewhere and if it is inaccessible, FoxyProxy should cry out an error message (but still work as before if possible).
2) the second problem is already written in the title: Icon in the FF "nav-bar". With FF5 and newest FoxyProxy I started to see this icon near the reload button. I don't know how to disable it or move it out of sight. It's good to have it, but if you have too many addons, than it takes too much place. I Use the "nav-bar" for Gmail Manager. It's enough to have FoxyProxy in the StatusBar/AddonBar.
It's really a good addon. I used Gmail Notifier in FF3 and moved to Gmail Manager after upgrade. This addon is even better than Gmail Notifier.
Only one thing seems to be missing:
When the icon is in the "nav-bar" just right of the forward/back arrows it uses the same style like in e.g. menu-bar (icon is on the left, text is on the right). It would be better if it uses the same style as is default for the specific toolbar (left/right for menu-bar, top/bottom for nav-bar, etc...). It will take less space on the toolbar, as the nav-bar is already sized to contain icons top and text bottom.
This is a really good add-on. I moved from Gmail Notifier 0.6.4.3, because it was outdated and the development stopped. And this one works on FF4 as well! The only thing which would be good (at least for FF3): I configured the add-on to display the icon in the "nav-bar". The problem is, that the account name after the icon is too BIG. Even after I renamed it to just a nickname, than it's too much. Maybe the text can go below the icon?
Anyway thanks for this addon!!!
I can confirm that "Toshyo's bugfix" works for me too. I'm looking forward for an official update.
