Web browser keeps asking for password on LAN

I have setup my Linux box SuSe 10.3 on my work LAN.
The problem is that everytime I launch a browser it keeps on asking for my proxy username and password, which I supply and ask it to remember ( I don't like doing this ) but the next time I try to go onto the Net, I am asked for the password again.

I suspect that this must be the reason I am also failing to do any updates e.g. update the video codecs using one click.

Is my proxy not set up ok? But then here I am, busy surfing the net. Only that I had to set the proxy at browser level and not system level as I didn't know how to do that.

Please help me setup my proxy at system level.
