How to change Proxy system wide properly in Ubuntu 9.04?

I changed the proxy preferences in System->Preferences-> Network Proxy and applied "Apply System-wide". But after the change Firefox and other browsers goes through the proxy but not certain applications which i use to connect to internet.(like Songbird and other applets). Need a solution for this.

"You need to check in the apps whether the proxy settings are marked as ""None"", System Defaults, or Manual.

A lot of the apps have this default to None, which could be why they are not honouring the global settings you have applied."
