using 1.5.3, can't get on yahoo, hotmail and facebook if i use a proxy. I can see the login page, but the submission will failed to connect.

IE has no problem with the same proxy. is it a GRE bug?

BTW, how do I upgrade the GRE? I follow the instructions in this page: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/GREUpdate
The manual steps don't work

no cigar, still getting the network timeout for the POST submission.

Network Timeout

The operation timed out when attempting to contact login.facebook.com.

You will find a GRE updater by desga2 on dirupted's extention page.

Make sure that You set UserAagentString to spoof firefox.

The pages You mention are known to have a browser switch that does not know K-Meleon.

Also have a look into error console, whether it gives You error.

I think I have found the source of the problem. k-meleon can't connect to ssl sites through proxy even though IE and firefox 3.5 have no such problems. The sites I mentioned require authenticate through SSL.
I updated the GRE, the problem still persists.
