Try using auth-sources authentication.  From the source commentary:

;; Easy setup:

;; (customize-variable 'auth-sources) ;; optional

;; now, whatever sources you've defined for password have to be available

;;; For url-auth authentication (HTTP/HTTPS), you need to use:

;;; machine yourmachine.com:80 port http login testuser password testpass

;;; This will match any realm and authentication method (basic or

It's not documented properly yet, but this should get you started.
Basically set up an authinfo file and put the proxy username and
password in it.
