Description

a year ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Ubuntu Chromium/55.0.2883.87 Chrome/55.0.2883.87 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

$ firefox --version
Mozilla Firefox 51.0.1

$ http_proxy="username:password@host:port" https_proxy="username:password@host:port"firefox

Firefox opts out a dialog asking for proxy authentication data, but it should take it from the env variable, other programs (curl etc.) do hadle it correctly.
