After Upgrading to Firefox 30 on Mac OS X 10.9 I don't get a "Proxy Auth" dialog anymore. 
With Firefox 29 everything works as expected.


Currently using "Build-Identifikator: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0"

Setting: Use Proxy Config from System (But also tested with manual Proxy config)
Isn't the proxy using NTLM v1 authentication?

I can replicate it perfectly well in Windows 7 using Firefox 30 Stable.
I can do the same test in CentOS/FF30 but I think i will encounter the same error there too like last time.

The Bug still exists. And all Version after Firefox 29 are not working. From Security Point of View this is a worse scenario. 

I'm irritated that the bug is still unconfirmed. It seem's dev are not interessted.  

This isn't so only anoying thing with Firefox after the "Run for Version Numbers" thing started. So I'll move to Safari now. 

Good bye Firefox (Been with you since ca 0.7) 

Good bye Mozilla

Dear Gerv,

Can you help this bug redirect to appropriate person.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Flags: needinfo?(gerv)
There's two different bugs that seem to be getting reported here.

1) showing "The proxy server is refusing connections" when you cancel a proxy auth dialog, instead of the proxy server's HTML error page. i.e. comment 0

2) Not getting any proxy auth dialog at all (comment 2).

Let's keep this bug confined to issue #1.  (I'm happy to see a new bug for issue #2 but we don't have enough info to reproduce it as is)

So.. 

karanjai.moz@gmail.com: can you tell me if you're trying to access an https:// URI when you see this behavior?  If so then this is a dupe of bug 493699, i.e. we don't show content from proxies because our internal architecture currently treats proxy error pages as if they had the origin of the desired web page, which would be a security hole (and sadly we're not likely to fix that any time soon). 

If it's happening for non-TLS http:// URLs too, then we may have a new bug here.

I am trying a non-https site. I just tested it again and replicated it in Firefox 31 running in Windows 7.
