I was not able to choose Proxy server type "System" from menu Tools > Options > Internet > Proxy
If I change type to "System", then click on OK, when I come back to dialog box, proxy type reverted to previous choice, either "None" or "Manual".
My system is WinXP. Confirmed on Win 7 and Ubuntu 10.10.
With LibO 3.3.0 RC4.
Same behavior with OOo 3.3.0RC10.
No issue found on IZ.
Solve in LibO 3.4.2
The bug is still present in 3.4.5
Actually, I did a mistake with my previous test, as the bug is still there. Sorry for the noise :(
- start with a new profile
- Tools > Options > Internet > Proxy is set to "System"
- change it to "None" or "Manual"
- reopen Tools > Options > Internet > Proxy
=> setting has been changed, ok
- change it to "System"
- reopen Tools > Options > Internet > Proxy
Expected: setting should be on "System"
Observed: setting kept previous choice ("None" or "Manual")
Configuration Win7 LibO3.5.0RC3
- either create a new profile
- or manually modify your config file "registrymodifications.xcu" in your profile:
- look for "ooInetProxyType"
- change value between <value> with 1:
<prop oor:name="ooInetProxyType" oor:op="fuse"><value>1</value></prop>

This patch remove a line preventing the saving of Internet Proxy "System" mode.
It solves the problem described here. Hope it does not have side effects.
Test on OpenSuse 12.1 x86_64.

Correct patch file
As far as I can see RestoreConfigDefaults_Impl is supposed to basically do the right thing, reset the values to their defaults, but the cast of m_xConfigurationUpdateAccess to an XPropertyState throws in SvxProxyTabPage::ReadConfigDefaults_Impl and SvxProxyTabPage::RestoreConfigDefaults_Impl so all of that reset is skipped/non-functional.
Looking into configmgr I don't see any mention of XPropertyState in the list of things an Access supports. Though I do see a mention in (the unbuilt) configmgr/qa/unit/test.cxx of //TODO: support setPropertyToDefault
So either configmgr's Access should support XPropertyState and the existing code in optinet2.cxx would then work fine, or Access shouldn't support XPropertyState and the XPropertyAccess using code in optinet2.cxx is all wrong.
This is kind of funny. While the old configmgr implementation did support XPropertyState, I was always under the impression that the implementation was actually not functional (i.e., setPropertyToDefault would effectively do nothing), so I did not bother to support it in the new configmgr.
The new configmgr is in since OOo 3.3, btw,; that explains why this issue first appeared with 3.3.
However, the proposed patch will not really work. As long as no manual settings have ever been made on that options tab page, changing from "None" to "System" will indeed cause the default values for the various proxy settings to be used. (Which are "external" configuration properties that obtain their values by querying specific "data backends.") But once any manual settings have been made, changing from "Manual" to "System" will erroneously keep those manual values.
A true fix would require some larger changes to configmgr, so that it keeps around in memory property values from lower layers that are overridden in higher layers. Other parts of configmgr would benefit from such a change, too (cf. the TODO comment at the head of Components::removeExtensionXcuFile in configmgr/source/components.cxx). Taking over.

Correct patch file
according to comment #7 this patch should not be integrated,
setting the "obsolete" flag so it does not turn up in bugzilla queries.
could you please give an update of this REOPENED bug status?
is this bug still relevant with latest 4.3.3 LibO release

Yes, the analysis in comment 7 is still relevant.
Is this some news about integration of this patch in last release ?
This bug has created about 6 years ago and it's not yet fixed in the latest version of LibreOffice (5.2.3), when will a fix be issued for this long-term bug?
I changed proxy settings to manual and couldn't verify if proxy worked, then when I changed it back to "System" proxy, the settings wasn't saved and it still showed the previous settings.
first of all, learn how to use the bug-tracker...
you changed version field to 18.104.22.168 without reading that it must indicate "earliest affected" (I'm reverting to previous value).
second, this kind of comment won't help fixing the bug.
instead of ranting you can fix it by youself (patch welcome) or pay a developer to fix it.

Looks like still true in 6.5+.
*** Bug 130027 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
On Win10 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this, I noticed this on console
warn:cui.options:14416:5208:cui/source/options/optinet2.cxx:304: SvxProxyTabPage::ReadConfigDefaults_Impl: RuntimeException caught
warn:cui.options:14416:5208:cui/source/options/optinet2.cxx:335: SvxProxyTabPage::RestoreConfigDefaults_Impl: RuntimeException caught
I just read all the comments. The root cause is known but it seems quite complicate to implement (at least for me) => uncc myself.
