Further details...

'localhost' and '' are already in "No proxy for", and firefox,
properly, delivers the local pages.

Adding 'pgsql.localhost.localdomain' to "No proxy for" has the desired
effect, firefox stays local.

I'm pretty sure, now, that firefox is turning off it's check of
'/etc/hosts' while in 'proxy mode', and it shouldn't do that.
I shouldn't have to enter local ip#'s in both places.

I'll be checking the firefox bugzilla later today.
