If I set up a browser to work thru a SOCKS proxy (eg over ssh), is DNS resolved thru the proxy or locally?

@deutrino different browsers have different defaults... would be a good idea to check docs for your browser

@deutrino SOCKS5 and SOCKS4a can resolve through the proxy, but you have to make sure that network.proxy.socks_remote_dns in about:config is set to true.

@moonman Looks like I'm gonna be setting up dev-specific browser profiles then.
