Net Profiles caused trouble in Firefox proxy settings

Net Profiles caused trouble in Firefox proxy settings

Last week I tried Net Profiles to switch between my connection settings (DNS, proxy etc.) easier but then I decided to uninstall the program. After uninstallation, I realized that Firefox connection settings are always automatically switched to No Proxy. Now I have to change it to Automatic Proxy Configuration URL option manually every time I start Firefox. I guess this behavior was caused by the uninstalled program Net Profiles. How can I correct this?

"OK, I found a solution:

I re-installed Net Profiles. My
previous profiles were there.
Then I deleted them all.
I created a new profile and in that
profile, I clicked on ""Clear settings
for Firefox"".
I opened Firefox' connection
settings and selected my ""Automatic
proxy configuration URL"".
In Net Profiles, I clicked on ""Get current
settings"".
I uninstalled Net Profiles.
I restarted Firefox, and
the problem is solved. That's all."
