Hi Riffat,

You have not specified what type of OS you are using. I have given the answer for firefox browser in ubuntu OS.

The problem is incorrect processing proxy exclusions. Default Ubuntu exclusions are located in no_proxyenvironment variable:

Removing proxy settings before running python script also helps:

Hope it will help you.
