Tinderclient currently has a problem when behing an http_proxy. 
Turning this on is trivial with LWP; basically calling

    $this->{UA}->env_proxy()

in tinderclient.pl's initialization. Sound correct?

Sounds like it's probably right.  I suggest making this a config variable, so
that there are no changes to the admin interface.  (By this I mean the machine
config, that set of name/value textboxes.)  Basically the only things to change
would be the default setup (so that people know this variable exists) and the
client (to grab the variable from the server and call that method).  Maybe
http_proxy=blah?

You can just use the env_proxy() call with no parameters to grab this from the
standard environment variable http_proxy. Something like:

Well, it's 2010 and it still doesn't work :(

http_proxy suport would be greatly appreciated.

I'm totally agree.
It would be nice if Firefox use http_proxy, ftp_proxy and https_proxy settings while "Use system proxy settings" are enabled.

I think bug 66057 was supposed to fix this, but apparently it didn't.
