Browser Proxy :(
It has a set of URLs its allowed to connect to , a black and a whitelist. Mainly connects to the support website.
But if can't start up it should just revert to the old system.
You could just delete it from the Utils folder in the Wow folder and see if it improves things.
I know it is because when i kill it my Latency goes back to ok
Hmmm. That makes .... no sense. It connects to the support website over port 80 IIRC.
This may be a bug !
Can you copy and paste the contents of your connection.log file from your Logs folder ?
It does it to my boyfriend too. Same drop in latency when he ends the task.
You can kill the wowproxy in your running services. It is not a needed function for the game to work. You can also tell if killing this service stops the latency issue. If it does then I suggest posting your findings on the bug report forum so QA can look into these issues.
This is new since patch 5.3. It is highly possible it will have bugs and need kinks worked out. This is why it would be important to bring it to the attention of QA via posting in bug report, or click the support link at the top of this page, then choose the option to report a bug.
Just thought I'd chime in with my own experience that occurred seconds before this posting.
EDIT: I noticed no latency issues, however.
When u said, kill the wowbrowserproxy.exe u refer to delate it ?
There is a bug that is affecting the WoW Browser. The bug is being looked into, but there is a workaround that you can use for now. Go into the World of Warcraft folder and delete the Utils folder, and you should have no more errors show up.
I'm available Monday through Friday from 11AM to 8PM Pacific Time
