prompt for proxy password

my college network uses proxy authentication for HTTP, and I've changed the proxy setting for my thunderbird as I did with my firefox. but thunderbird doesnt prompt anythin such as proxy authentication. and I still cant get any of my email instead of an email account in my network

Any chance

you set it as the incorrect password by accident and now it isn't prompting you? Check TB's remembered passwords. That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

In order to make the proxy

In order to make the proxy authentication box to appear in portable TB, one could do one of the following:
Go to Tools --> Extensions ---> Click on Find Updates.


Go to Help --> Check for Updates after which the authentication box will appear. You do not need to perform the update persé, select later.

Unfortunately, I have to perform this step everytime I start Portable TB else it will not connect to the proxy server.

Hope it helps.
