Vivaldi 2.5 update broken proxy PAC support
At least PAC proxy configuration. It's not working since 2.5 update. All other browsers on my system (Chrome, Opera, Edge) are working as intended.
The same for me! Only manual proxy settings are worked
Is this confirmed issue VB-53567 "Proxy settings using PAC do not work anymore"
I don't know. I don’t have access to the vivaldi issue tracker.
@lmars I have.
I pinged a dev to check for a fix.
is this fixed?
I would like to try the proxy PAC in Vivaldi....
I found I'm using Firefox more and more.... but it's still impossible to remove the space-taking address bar there....
Proxy Switcher may help as it has its own PAC support
That is a issue with intern Chromium code in Vivaldi, Chromium has the same problem with autoproxy pac.
Can only be fixed by chromium developers.
It seems to me that this is intentional change and will not be reverted in future Chromium versions so I had to run own nginx server. Changed script location from c:\aaa\my.pac to http://server_ip/my.pac and all works as it should again.
Thank you Gwen-Dragon.

Just for the reference in case anyone was looking for a more clear explanation:
- this came from decision in here, and it may still have a workaround via cmdline flags
- the official statement is that file:// handlers for PAC will be deprecated very soon, and you should use http[s]:// locations for PAC rule files if you need them (either web-servers or simple scripts in languages that support basic socket operations will work)
- also this
As of myself, I brought up a super-simple lighttpd config that serves my PAC files from localhost.
