Description

Fiddler Everywhere uses the dconf for setting/getting the proxy configuration through the UI. Some alternative desktop environments like XFCE store the data in different locations or lack a graphical interface for setting the system proxy. This will lead to Fiddler Everywhere not to set or unset the system proxy, which can break the application and the internet connectivity due to leaked proxy settings.

Solution

  • Use the dconf-editor and remove the org.gnome.system.proxy. If this action is not permitted, go to the next step. Otherwise, skip to the last step.
  • Go to Proxy > HTTP and remove the org.gnome.system.proxy.
  • Go to Proxy > HTTPS and remove the org.gnome.system.proxy.
  • Restart Fiddler Everywhere.
