I was using Safari with a proxy server on my Macbook Pro for the last week or so, because people who log ip addresses on places like LiveJournal etc annoy me and I'd rather not reveal all to whoever happens to be looking. It was all working fine, then suddenly when I went to use it this morning, Safari won't connect through a proxy server at all, no matter what I do. All I get is; +Safari can’t open the page “http://www.google.com/” because Safari can’t connect to the web proxy server (HTTP).+

I know the ip address I'm using is fine because it will work in Firefox, and not only that, Safari on my sister's Macbook will accept that same ip address and load webpages fine, so it's obviously something screwy over here. I hadn't touched settings or anything between using it yesterday and it not working today. I've even updated Safari to see if that's the problem. It's not, and I'm stuck as to why it's suddenly thrown a hissy fit.
