I would like to request SOCKS v5 support for the 'HTTP Proxy / Firewall (search engines)' option. I currently have to use my web browser to make searches on NZB sites like Newzleecher, but I'd like to start using alt.binz for this. All of my web browser traffic goes through a socks 5 proxy since I'd rather my ISP not be able to log/track the sites I visit and the searches I make.
Currently, when I try to use alt.binz for searches with the 'HTTP Proxy / Firewall (search engines)' option enabled, with the correct address and port listed (does not require authentication), I can't get any results back. I'm assuming this is because the option doesn't support socks 5 at the moment. If I disable the option, searches are returned, but I don't want my ISP seeing some of the things I search for. With the HTTP Proxy option enabled and not functioning for me currently, the "No results" status text changes after I attempt the search to "Error during transfer".
Many thanks for considering this addition!
