Today I just installed Epiphany web browser in my Ubuntu 12.04, I got “Cannot resolve proxy hostname ()” error while trying to open a web page. It was strange while Google Chrome and Firefox were well working.

Soon I got the point and decided to write this stupid tip for newbies using Midori or Epiphany web browser.

Head to System Settings -> Network, in Network Proxy tab set Proxy Method to None and click “Apply system wide”.

That’s it!
