    Is there a browser in which I can change proxy settings? I downloaded opera Mini but can't see an option to change proxy settings:(

    I want to do it only via the ohone's settings, not having to browse i and change major code each time I want to switch off and on.

    ALSO - can I change proxy settings for the Market?

    I am trying to use my wifi network at work but need to change proxy settings to get web access . . .

    I found a setting called "Proxy" in the "Acces Point Names" section of the settings.

    Not at work right now, but will that let me eneter my work's proxy settings for using wifi? or is the apn not used if wifi is being used?

    Even if it worked with wifi, you cannot input auto-setup proxy scripts, which is useful when you use corporate wifi networks (which I suppose is the main scenario, where you need to use proxy nowadays), you can only set up exact known proxy server address.

    i guess we'll have to wait for mobile firefox for this feature. it's silly if you know that proxy is standard feature of all known browsers ever created, for PC though.

    Even if it is available on Firefox mobile - It won't work for system settings like autosynch will it:(

    Obviously it won't, as it would be an individual app setting, not a system wide.
