Bug Description

We use a proxy in the company. We don't provide internal name resolution of external ip addresses except through the proxy. Therefore I cannot use Dictionary inside the corporate network as I get an error - "Lookup failed for host 'dict.org': Unknown error". There are no preferences in the application to enable proxies.
