Just a side note on this.
By reading the Wikipedia article about WPAD¹ it looks like Firefox can
only play nice with a DNS based method as specifically mentioned in the
DHCP has a higher priority than DNS: if DHCP provides the WPAD URL, no
DNS lookup is performed. Notice that Firefox and Chrome do not support
DHCP, only DNS
Not sure if that information still remains true, though...
