Firefox Sync not working with weave server behind password protected proxy

Since the sync is moved from firefox to Android, I'm completely unable to sync my bookmarks with my personal weave server. The server is internal, but accessible via a proxy with a username/password for all internal sites. Last working version was 10.0.5, all newer versions have this problem. I've just reinstalled the ancient version, as I now need the bookmarks. First syncing in 10.0.5 and then upgrading to anything newer makes all previous synced data unavailable. BTW the newef versions will let you add other devices to the same sync account (on the internal server), but it just complete refuses to collect any data at all from the server. (I don't even see any attempts in the logging of the proxy server)

I'm unable to get debug info, as I don't have a google account (don't trust them) and can't run SDK or other non-standard tools on my company phone.

The phone in question is a Samsung Galaxy S2, latest software version (Android 4.04) Is there a way to get firefox doing the sync? (As Android just can't handle this)
