    375 Sometimes you are in a resricted environment and you need your WebKit development environment to work properly behind a proxy, so things like `run-minibrowser --gtk http://www.webkit.org` will actually work, instead of getting stuck trying to load stuff using the wrong "no proxy" settings.
     375If you just need to use a proxy in MiniBrowser (eg: for testing purposes, bandwidth shaping, etc.) set the right environment variables before launching MiniBrowser. For example:
     376{{{
     377export http_proxy="http://localhost:3128"
     378export https_proxy="http://localhost:3128"
     379}}}

     381But sometimes you are in a resricted environment and you need your whole WebKit development environment to work properly behind a proxy, so things like `run-minibrowser --gtk http://www.webkit.org` will actually work, instead of getting stuck trying to load stuff using the wrong "no proxy" settings.

    377383In order to do that, you would need to build `dconf` inside the jhbuild environment, so glib-networking will be able read your configuration through GSettings properly, instead of just reading the default values from the GSettings memory backend that would be in use otherwise.
