I have one specific browser instance that I have configured to always use fiddler, I turn on and off others as needed. I'm doing development work and I want to see what's actually being sent back and forth, but, I really only care about my stuff.
I launch fiddler with my PC, and I have the "Capture traffic" turned off and the setting "Act as system proxy on startup" is not checked in the connections tab.
Other application on my system are still finding and using fiddler as it's proxy server, frequently causing failures.
How do I "hide" fiddler so that other systems like skype and google drive don't use it?
It impacts me negatively in 3 ways.
First, I only want to see traffic that I send to fiddler, I have to go out and delete a bunch of stuff. I can remove them with filters and probably find a way to make my filters "stick" and survive reboot. I'd have to research that.
Second and more importantly, I decrypt https, which fails on application that are not configured to use the self generated signatures.
Third, when I do shut down fiddler, the apps that have auto-detected it and configured themselves to use fiddler, still want to use fiddler.
