I too was surprised to find no proxy settings, in fact I was surprised that there is pretty much no ability to configure the browser settings at all. What about privacy settings etc? If it's a chromium wrapper then we should be able to configure the chromium instance used. chrome://settings pops a blank page.
This is not really an answer, we will have to get one from a Windows person. But just FWIW, in OSX Terminal is an app that is standard on the Mac. Mac is all about GUI interface which is nice. But it is also based on Unix and using Terminal with bash commands can do a great deal of things and can even be destructive to the uninitiated.
I am not afraid to use Terminal commands when following someone’s instructions but I generally keep it as a big tool I only get out when absolutely necessary. I can see there are programmers using Freeter. To them it probably makes better sense using commands. For my use it is something that if I had the option in preferences I would probably just do away with (hide). And yes, that is because I don't really understand it's usefulness of command lines in a day to day workflow.
My work is all about organizing and staying organized as I try my best not to get totally lost in a project. Of course, I am always willing and interested to learn more. To me it is all about keeping all the parts together, building a plan, and staying focused.
I'm having similar issues with sessions not restoring login details.
Bitbucket, Intercom, Heroku, and some others, all ask me sign in every time switch to the dashboard containing the webpage widget.
All these sites allow me to stay signed in for many weeks in Chrome before the session runs out and I have to sign in again.
In Chrome this is not an issue since there is 1Password integration, but in Freeter there is no password manager integration and signing in to services multiple times becomes cumbersome, especially when using 'secure' passwords of random characters and symbols.
I'm looking forward to seeing what steps can be made to alleviate this obstacle.
@PixelMort Thanks for using Freeter! Yes, sure. Please check the Back up & Sync feature on Freeter settings. Accessible via Main Menu > Freeter > Preferences on Mac, or Main Menu > File > Settings on Win/Linux.
