There's a regression in Liferea 1.8.0 that causes it to ignore the proxy
settings for requests made though the feed item viewer. The configured HTTP
proxy is used to update the feeds, though.
This has been fixed upstream in:
The attached patch "backports" this fix.
Fix: Apply the patch (with -p0).
You may want to shorten the patch it creates in net/liferea/files to the
src/ui/liferea_htmlview.c chunk. I kept it as-is so comparing with the source
is easier. It was created with: git format-patch --no-prefix
Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Configure a HTTP proxy in Liferea, read a feed item with embedded images and
watch the network traffic.
In environments where direct HTTP requests from common applications are
redirected or blocked and DNS requests are made through Tor, the image requests
will also take longer than usual and occasionally timeout.
