I didn't expect it to work, but didn't hurt to try it. Thanks for looking at it.

Thanks for testing.

Behavior is still the same - no prompt for a password, and fails to get setup (popup message).
I tried both use IE settings, and Use HTTP/FTP proxy with proxy name and port.
Logs are as follows:

$ cat setup.log.full-ie
Fetching URL: http://cygwin.com/mirrors.lst
2017/05/15 11:17:12 HTTP status 403 fetching http://cygwin.com/mirrors.lst

I think that "403 forbidden" means that this request is prohibited by the configuration of the proxy, so really you need to contact whoever administers it.

Since curl/wget works to fetch the same URLs through that proxy, it might be that the user-agent is disallowed, possibly you could test this by attempting trying with --user-agent="Cygwin Setup"?
