YaST doesn't do that for all applications, only those conforming to some non-enforced standards. Those are:

  1. In your Desktop Environment (Gnome, KDE, probably also XfCE and LXDE/LXQt) open your control center and configure the proxy there. In case you're using e.g. Gnome and KDE applications make sure to do this for both control centers.
  2. Set your environment variables, e.g. by adding these lines to your ~/.bashrc:

    export http_proxy=

    export https_proxy=$http_proxy

    export ftp_proxy=$http_proxy

    export rsync_proxy=$http_proxy

More details can be found in this Arch Wiki entry which should mostly apply to Fedora too.
