Opened: Nov 17, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Once the VPN is established and F5 Access updates the proxy configuration on the client, the first request sent from the Firefox browser does not use the updated proxy configuration. Subsequent requests use the correct proxy configuration.

Impact

Proxy configuration changes are not applied immediately by Firefox on OS X. Wrong proxy configuration will be used for first request. Depending on setup, the client might not be able to reach the site, or the request won't go through intended proxy server.

Conditions

Firefox browser is used on Mac OS X.

Workaround

None.
