Socks proxy users who use Firefox may want to make a few changes. Apparently when WebSockets are enabled Firefox makes DNS queries directly to the local network.

While the article relates to Tor, it regards the socks proxy portion. This is obviously has the potential to be undesireable in many instances beyond Tor. A quick and dirty fix reported is to disable WebSockets:

Type about:config into the URL bar and hit enter.
Type websocket into the search bar that appears below "about:config".
Double-click on network.websocket.enabled. It should change to False

This should stop Firefox from making local DNS queries when you are using a socks proxy.
