My Question or Issue

When I set up the socks5 proxy through the client's built-in proxy function, it wouldn't work. 

I checked and found that even if the socks5 proxy is selected within the client, it still sends requests with the http protocol.

 

I had to manually edit the configuration file named prefs,

 

app.last-launched-version="1.1.81.604.gccacfc8c"

...
network.proxy.addr="127.0.0.1:myport@socks5"
network.proxy.mode=4

 

After adding @socks5 at the end of the network.proxy.addr line, it works properly.

The network.proxy.mode line does not work as it should, its value is 2 when set to http proxy and 4 when socks5 proxy, which should serve to differentiate, but if you don't add @socks5, they both send http requests.
