You have to restart your user session if you've changed
the proxy settings. Being environment-based, these settings
won't propagate to running processes.

There is no standard regarding proxy configuration besides
those two environment variables "http_proxy" and "no_proxy".
Tools that make use of proxies (wget, curl, browsers) may
have other proprietary configurations, but at the and they
all support these environment variables.
