maemo.org Bugzilla – Full Text Bug Listing
|Summary:||Automatic proxy configuration URL not obeyed by RSS feed reader|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] RSS feed reader||Reporter:||Simon Pickering <S.G.Pickering>|
|Status:||RESOLVED FIXED||QA Contact:||rss-feed-reader-bugs|
|Bug Depends on:|
If using an automatic configuration url for the proxy settings, this is obeyed by the web browser and internet radio, however the news-reader ignores it. This is with version 1.2005.42-9 of the Internet Tablet software.
Simon, I'm unable to reproduce this problem due to the network environment I got (manual proxy configuration). Would it be possible for you to re-test with a newer product image, say 2006-13?
This bug is still present in the latest software release (5.2006.13-7). The symptoms are the same - the web browser and internet radio work when using the automatic configuration address, but the news-reader doesn't. I also note that the automatic configuration address cannot have a leading http:// otherwise nothing will work. This is slightly confusing as the address surely requires the protocol type? One solution would be to have it work with or without the http:// (certainly more robust that the current behaviour). Likewise the manual proxy addresses won't accept a protocol affix (like http://) though I'm not sure whether this is accepted practice. Simon
Thanks for verifying the bug with 2006-13. Bug has been reported to upstream maintainer.
Still present in 4.2008.36-5, with or without "http://" in the proxy auto-config URL.
Still happening in current Fremantle as per negative test (enter a fake proxy address and see RSS loading feeds while browser correctly fails).
Funny thing is: I cannot reproduce this issue in 5.2008.43-7. Entering a fake proxy address makes the RSS feed reader unable to refresh feeds. So it seems it's FIXED in latest Diablo, but valid in current Fremantle.
(In reply to comment #8) > Funny thing is: I cannot reproduce this issue in 5.2008.43-7. Yes, this bug was about "automatic configuration"-type proxy settings. If the Fremantle version doesn't honour HTTP-type proxy settings that sounds like a new bug.
Closing as FIXED as per internal comment: "I tested this issue on version 2010.04-11 after changing the proxy settings as mentioned in the bug scenario. When the user tries to add feed in rss it is showing the banner as "unable to add the feed. Address Invalid". If the user tries to refresh the feeds which was already added rss will not refresh it is displaying the old refreshed contents."
That doesn't sound like FIXED to me, more like a confirmation of the bug.
I don't think so, as my internal ticket was: STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 1. Go to Settings > Internet Connections > Connections > Edit > Next > Next > Next > Advanced 2. Enable "Use proxy" 3. Enter HTTP proxy = example.foo 4. Port number = 80 (5. Enter HTTPS proxy = example.foo) (6. Port number = 80) 7. Click "Save" 8. Start browser 9. Go to http://www.spiegel.de 10. Get correct Error message 11. Start RSS feed reader 12. Add feed "http://www.spiegel.de/schlagzeilen/index.rss" 13. Click Refresh icon EXPECTED OUTCOME: Global Proxy settings are used. Hence RSS feed reader should not be able to access the feed as the HTTP proxy address is a fake one ACTUAL OUTCOME: Global Proxy settings are ignored. RSS feed loads. Hence if it now does not work with fake proxy settings, it's fixed I'd say.
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the fix will be available to users). Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
Lucas, I'm getting lost. :-/ Feel more than welcome to file a fresh new bug report explaining the steps and explaining what the bug is *not* about.
