Still the same problem on 0.9.1.53.g876fa9df. So now we've got Discover which of course can connect without issue but other applications still can't connect when behind proxy. My patience is running out! Fix it!
Hey Daniel, I tried this solution but when I change the prefs file from "https" to "http", the Proxy Menu on Spotify changes to "auto-detect" and I can't connect. I have to change it back to HTTPS but then the prefs file changes.
Maybe you have different problem. But even the solution I've described can be tricky to do the first time. It took me a while to make it right as well. I think you need to make sure that you have BOTH lines in the prefs file. The
network.proxy.mode=2 gets deleted sometimes by the app. You should add it manually if necessary.
In short you should see these two lines in the prefs file:
if one of them is missing, add it please. They may be in the different order or not following each other.
After that it is normal that your preference pane doesn't show the correct information, because it doesn't match the "@https". Each time you open the preference dialog, please quit the app, fix the lines above and reopen the app WITHOUT consulting the preference pane. Otherwise these infos get "corrected" again.
But still if even with these two lines correctly set in your "prefs" file you can't connect, there is some other problem in your case and you should provide as many information as possible to Spotify and push them to fix that.
Thanks for your answer. I recently submitted an online contact form, and they said to try a clean re-install of Spotify. It worked, but now I'm not running behind a proxy. I don't know if it's going to last (I always had to be behind a proxy to make it work and not having connection errors), if it doesn't I'll try your solution.
