Fiddler did not bring back my os settings when it crashed, moreover it did not restore them even after restarting the os. The problem is that fiddler itself also uses system proxy settings, so I can't run it to get my internet connection back.
How can I get my os settings back before using fiddler?

I had to run my old, self-written proxy server to finally log into fiddler. I resent the fact that fiddler cannot be started without logging into my account, and that the "act as system proxy on startup" checkbox was unchecked

As it turned out, this was only the beginning of the problems. I banned fiddler from using the proxy, but the next time it refused to start again, it did not return the system settings. The only solution I can see is to find the file where it enters the http_proxy and https_proxy variables, but all my attempts are powerless.

I changed the port in the fiddler settings so that it would not conflict with my proxy, then it could return my os settings

Hi BoBaH,

 

Thank you for providing the feedback about your experience with the Fiddler product on Linux! I assume that you are using Fiddler Everywhere (and not Fiddler) as you have trouble logging in (which is available only in FE). If that is the case, you could also check the Fiddler Everywhere forum threads posted here by community members.

In any case, even if you are using the beta Fiddler for Linux or Fiddler Everywhere if possible, please provide the details requested below:

- What is the Linux distribution used on your side?
- Is there any additional network settings applied on a system level? If yes, please provide as many details as possible so that we could recreate the scenario.

From your last post, it looks like that changing the default port was resolving your issue - is that the correct assumption? Was your system proxy working on the same port as Fiddler Everywhere?
