For about 4 or 5 days, we've been unable to get a server list from Mumble.


The error message is: [11:49 AM] Mumble failed to retrieve version information from the central server.


Mumble 1.2.3 on Mac OS 10.7 (me) (I thought I had 123a, but about says just 123)

Mumble 1.2.3a on Windows (not sure which version) (friend)

So yes, and I see what looks like redirects.


EDIT: To clarify, attempting to open the "Public Internet" in the server list gives "failed to fetch server list"

So it turned out to be that on Mumble preferences, Network tab, Proxy type (a pull-down) had been changed from direct to Socks 5, but no data had been entered. The error message was not clear enough to explain that Mumble was looking for a proxy server.


No data entered. No host name, etc.


How did this happen? It turns out that if I'm using mouse scroll to move down the page -- the whole preference page does not fit on-screen at once -- as soon as the drop-down bar is moved to the mouse pointer, the drop-down selector will scroll.


In other words, attempting to move down the preferences, without actually changing anything, results in a "mouse-by" ("drive-by") alteration of the settings without warning or error checking.
