The error is below: ... toddy.sun - it sounds like your proxy has an invalid cert according to your trust list. you've got at least 3 choices 1] add CA signing cert used to create the proxy cert to your root store.. there are lots of tutorials for this on the web (https://www.herongyang.com/Cryptography/Web-Browser-Firefox-Import-CA- Certificate.html) 2] get yourself a cert firefox considers valid by default. startssl.com will do that for you for free. 3] you can do a TOFU exception for the proxy case, but you have to do it a little differently. a] turn off the proxy use in firefox. b] put https://PROXYNAME:PROXYPORT/ in the location bar (use the same name and port number as you have configured in the PAC - you can't use ip addresses or default ports.. you can't use ip addresses because they can't be verified by the PKI and exceptions are stored per port. c] override the cert warning and perm. store the exception. The response you get will be meaningless as you are now addressing the proxy port as if it was an endpoint d] turn the proxy back on and use it.
