 This bug does not affect Tor Browser 4.0.1

 I use my own privoxy proxy settings and tor instance to browse the web.

 Tor button -> preferences shows my settings as:

 HTTP Proxy: Port: 8118
 SSL Proxy: Port: 8118
 SOCKS Host: Port 9050

 With those settings I get the error

     Problem loading page
     Unable to find the proxy server
     Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that can't be found.

 I can only browse if i remove the HTTP and SSL proxy settings and leave
 the SOCKS host settings on.

 My configuration is correct and it works with tor browser 4.0.1 and
 versions before that.
