I am using Mac/Firefox. Use System Proxy Settings.
My question is how does my off-the-shelf installed Firefox resolve local websites names, when apparently, I am not using any proxy. I just use System proxy settings. What and where from are these settings picked up?
I am able to access these local sites without any proxy. I always thought that some global DNS servers are hard-coded in browser, but they won't be of any use here, because these local sites will not be exposed to these global DNS servers.
