Will iGetter use a .PAC file specified in the Mac OS X system proxy settings?

In my trials so far, Safari and Chrome will, but iGetter will not.

Because of Mountain Lion sandboxing, Safari will only use the .PAC file if it is located in a special "WebKit" directory.

I'm guessing...hoping...that iGetter also needs for the PAC to be in a special location, and that's why it isn't working.

OS X 10.8.4 Safari 6.0.5 iGetter 2.9.2

iGetter doesn't support proxies defined with a .pac file. But it should work if you enter the proxy settings manually in the System Preferences -> Network -> Proxies.

BTW, it seems that local .pac files are sandboxed in Lion/ML, but some users report that they work if located on a remote server (http://).

Thanks for that clarification.

I realized later that a PAC file is simply javascript code. And that iGetter probably wouldn't have javascript built in.

BTW, thanks for a good software product. iGetter is the best engineered download manager. Renaming always works, and it does Resuming the best -- two things other managers don't do as well.
