https and port 80 problem

 Hi everyone,
I'm new to Android and have just successfully created some small apps
based upon tutorials and examples. My problem is the network (or
proxy) connection of the Android emulator. I'm behind a proxy and have
no direct connection to the Internet. After some troubleshooting I
found out, the Android web browser is trying to establish https
connection to port 80 and not 443 (the https default port).
Unfortunately, my proxy server only allows https connection on port
443, not 80. Any address I try to access through the Android web
browser is changed to https with port 80, for example 

Any ideas how to fix this problem or a small workaround?

1. Activity callback anomaly

I'm noticing a strange pattern in my acitivty when I open another activity
from within mine (I have a button that goes to the contacts view, for
instance). Instead of my onPause method being called once, I'm seeing this
pattern: onPause, onResume, onPause, in very quick succession. I can't
figure out why this happens, and it's causing a problem with the
multithreading that I'm trying to do.. but that's a separate issue. My main
concern is why onPause isn't being called just once, like it is when I press
the Home button from within my app.

Anyone have any ideas? I have a feeling it might have something to do with
the intent I'm using the start the contacts view. All I have right now is
the VIEW action with the contacts URI.  Am I missing a flag or something?

Will Google take patches to their own apps? Say the Gmail app? If not, is
there a place to request additions?
