I often use SOCKS5 proxies at work, and I LOVE that Spotify supports that. I also use a regular HTTP proxy at my office now, and recently couldn't figure out why Spotify wouldn't connect (offline mode). Then I realized, I had changed my network password at work, and the embedded proxy settings were incorrect.
Spotify sat there quietly after each launch, providing no clues as to why it wouldn't get out of offline mode. Once I remembered I had changed my password, I went into the settings and updated it, and voila! - Spotify started working.
It'd be convenient if we could get some kind of notification that it's not connecting to the network, or ideally that there are proxy issues.
