Update check impossible - no facility to enter firewall proxy server authentication details

Our firewall proxy server requires username/password authentication and there is no facility to enter and/or store these details, so Update Check always fails.
It would be very useful if you could add proxy server authentication (proxy servername, port, username, password) to the Update Check option.
Navigation: Edit -> Settings... -> Update Check
Please note: this was originally posted as ticket:4588 but was closed as being a duplicate of ticket:4508. It isn't, however: behind our firewall we bypass the proxy server, so setting the global proxy settings actually disables access to all sites within our intranet. Separate settings for Update Check (separate from global proxy settings) would resolve this problem. I'm sure many others have the same problem.
Thanks - and keep up the good work:-)
