Description

Add proxy

Have an option (checkbox) to use this proxy as primary connection.

For those that need to enforce connections via proxy. Direct connections are invalid forms of connection and should never be used.

primary view

- within table view include a right click function to perform the above 'add proxy' option.
- make column mouse over help work for the rows as it does for the column. eg. 'default connection: true'. Like how we do the connection info win download tab.
- simple proxy test: which checks ipcheck[n].jdownloader.org to see if it returns proxy IP. Design in a manner not to cause issues with ddos events to our ip check services. Perform once on start and if the user enables a proxy within the list and or adds new proxy.
- connection manager global user setting, to auto disable proxy/direct connection if it fails a given simple test (above).
