Fiddler to restore proxy settings after system crash

Fiddler swaps out the real proxy settings for localhost when in use. When you disconnect or close it, it restores the proxy settings. However, if the system crashes or power fails while Fiddler is in use, upon rebooting the real proxy settings are of course missing, they're still set to localhost. I would expect that if were to then run Fiddler, it would find those proxy settings again so that if I run Fiddler and close it again, my original proxy settings would be restored. Sadly this doesn't happen so in this scenario I have to manually set up my proxy settings again. Can this be implemented?
