Disable the HTTP Proxy in the Browser

Many web browsers are configured to use an HTTP proxy server to increase the download speed of web pages. To manage or configure the Firebox with the Web UI, your browser must connect directly to the device. If you use an HTTP proxy server, you must temporarily disable the HTTP proxy setting in your browser. You can enable the HTTP proxy server setting in your browser again after you set up the Firebox.

Use these instructions to disable the HTTP proxy in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. For other browsers, use the browser Help system to find the necessary information. Many browsers automatically disable the HTTP proxy feature.
