Updates behind http proxy sever

I have several installations of FZ Client on the network, The update module is able to retrieve the latest version, clicking next prompts the 'save file' dialogue', it then attempts to contact a number of severs over port 80:

I assume this is because it is not going via the network's web proxy?

Could it download a new version using FTP?

I would prefer it if the Client used the same protocol to do the downloading than what it uses to do the checking.

i.e.: You're doing the check via HTTPS, so if that works, it should be safe to assume that the download also works via HTTPS.

This isn't the case right now, so while the Client tells me that there's a new update available, it can't download it, as it tries to do the download via HTTP, which requires authentication behind our proxy.
