Abstract: A commutative ring $ R$ is $ F{P^2}F$ (resp. FPF) provided that all finitely presented (resp. finitely generated) faithful modules generate the category $ \bmod - R$ of all $ R$-modules. A conjecture of the author dating to the middle 1970s states that any $ F{P^2}F$ ring $ R$ has FP-injective classical quotient ring $ Q = {Q_{cl}}(R)$. It was shown by the author (Injective quotient rings. II, Lecture Notes in Pure and Appl. Math., vol. 72, Dekker, New York, 1982, pp. 71-105) that FPF rings $ R$ have injective $ Q$ and by the author and P. Pillay (Classification of commutative FPF rings, Notas Math., vol. 4, Univ. de Murcia, Murcia, Spain, 1990) that $ CF{P^2}F$ local rings (defined below) have FP-injective $ Q$.

The counterexample is a difficult example due to Huckaba of a strongly Prüfer ring without "Property A." (A ring with Property A was labelled a McCoy ring by the author.)

This counterexample is $ CF{P^2}F$ in the sense that every factor ring of $ R$ is $ F{P^2}F$.
