We should look at the DNS lookup code on about:networking and make sure it respects our proxy settings or is useful at all in our context.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed
function doLookup() {
  let host = document.getElementById("host").value;
  if (host) {
    gDashboard.requestDNSLookup(host, displayDNSLookup);

( is responsible for the lookup which goes to Dashboard::RequestDNSLookup()
( which calls mDnsService->AsyncResolve() which in turn calls nsDNSService::AsyncResolveExtended() which we have patched.

The browser console returns our error code: NS_ERROR_UNKNOWN_PROXY_HOST. So, we are good here I think.
