Auto-update doesn't work behind authenticated HTTP proxy
I'm using Opera 23 at work and we use an HTTP proxy server. When setting Opera to use the default Windows system settings for the proxy I can access the internet and do all my routine operations. However, whenever Opera tries to update itself I get a prompt telling me have to authenticate to the proxy $1 and a valid hostname within out corporate network. When I authenticate with the correct credentials the prompt keeps coming back and Opera times out after a while.
I don't understand why the auto-update feature isn't working correctly while the rest of the internet access works like a charm.
I hope there's a (future) fix for this because I want to stay up-to-date and secure
Still present using v26 dev... any ideas ?
You know, Opera browser is just Chrome, Google developers implement proxy support correctly. Opera Autoupdater is made by Opera developers, this is the reason why it does not work...
I added a bug report for that: DNA-30327
OK... Nothing until about some correction for such bug (DNA-30327)? It's quite annoying! Whenever I try to use Opera at work, where proxy authentication is mandatory, I never succeed with Auto-Update, besides general navigation seems to run smoothly.
Note: I use Firefox too in the same 'environment', and its auto-update feature works normally!
it is very old and important issue , I can not understand why Opera devs can not resolve this.
I'm a new Opera user and trying it out but this insane, repeated prompting makes me want to uninstall Opera.
