So if you have a proxy pac file where your IP address defines your proxy, you might accidentally go right to the end to the ”emergency” proxy, which in my case is on a different continent. US users end up going all the way through the Atlantic to go to the internet.
Will lowering the prio of the virtualbox interface change the proxy selection? i’ll find out on Monday.
I was right! disabling the virtualbox adapter was enough for the browser to start using the local proxy rather than the european proxy. I was really pleased with myself when I saw that.
