On 2.5 beta 567: the proxypassword pop that used
to appear on launch when running feedreader is not
appearing anymore. I can't use the software since I
need to authenticate to go through the password.

    There is a workaround to this. I'm using build610, so I don't
    know if it works in 567. Each time you shut down and restart
    feedreader, you'll have to do this to enter your proxy
    password:
    Go to Properties, Connection tab. Simply click OK (no
    changes necessary), and the password dialog box will pop
    up. Enter your password and you're good to go.

    problem:
    On 2.5/610 the proxy password is only asked, when I leave
    the properties dialog (so on initial setup, but not on normal
    use).

    solution: check the proxy-password on startup or on 1st
    connect

    additional: the proxy-password is displayed in plain text. use
    a password-bot therefor.

    Same thing.

    You can use the software, though. Go to Options and setup
    proxy settings again. It will help till you will need to restart
    application. Bizzare !

    hi!

    you can workaround that issue on v2.5 build 610 as follows:
    create a reg_sz value named "ProxyPassword"
    in HKCU\Software\Feedreader\Properties
    fill in the desired password...
    disadvantage: its plain text :-(

    Best Bytes,
    Harry
