    Loopback is paranoid option. It was added on demand of some geeks and it should be activated only by those who understands what does it do. Other people (who make majority) can safely uncheck it (like I do). This is my opinion as the lead OA developer since v2.0 until V5.0. Hope it helps you :)

    All my browsers use a local proxy (proxomitron).
    Alex, don't you think 'intercept loopback' should be checked (enabled) in this situation?
    Many Thanks.
