Proxy Setting Prevents Opening Website

Postby phoenix » Fri Nov 14, 2008 10:51 pm

Under Options->Connection Tab, If I select "Using Internet Explorer's setting", then everything is fine on updating the feeds and opening a website in a new tab.

However, if I select "Using following proxy server" to use a local proxy server (proxomitron), the feeds updating is OK but I can't open any website in a new tab. The another problem is any images in the feeds are not displayed too.

Both build 383 and 384 has the same problem. I had made several tests to finally find out it is Greatnews' bug.

My case is worse. I am trying to use the proxy settings (undet the Connection tab) but with an error saying:

Failed to change proxy user nam.. Reason[12018:(null)]

Exact the same error that is reported under this chinese thread

¿Has anyone a solution to this? ¿Does anyone knows what to put in the URL field... the proxys IP o something like: http://10.X.X.X?
