Bug description:
  *** WORKAROUND ***

  This only applies if you have Firefox configured to use the system
  proxy settings (which is the default) and have used the manual
  settings at some point in the past.

  1) Open the proxy configuration dialog
     - Edit -> Preferences from the menu, open the "Advanced" pane, select the 
       tab and press the "Settings" button next to "Configure how Firefox 
connects to
       the Internet"
  2) Delete any residual manual proxy configuration settings. To do this, you 
will need
     to select "Manual", delete the settings, click OK and then re-open the 
dialog to
     set it back to "System" again

  Note, we're going to respin Firefox 22 with the patch from
  https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=817533 , even if upstream


  I just received the upgrade to FF22 through the update-center. After
  restarting firefox, I wasn't able to connect to any single web-page.

  Checking the 'about:config' network settings, I found out that
  something had changed the proxy-settings and everything was directed
  to '134.246...' (don't remember the whole number). After resetting all
  proxy values, firefox worked again as usual.
