From bug 81110: Ignore examples from before, ftp is pretty much off (and never coming back) at packetgram.com... STEPS: 1- Configure to use "FTP Proxy" (actually URL proxy over HTTP) 2- Connect to an FTP server and force auth (by having a username in your ftp URL) OBSERVED: receive username + password dialog EXPECTED: since the username is already in the URL, the dialog should be pre-populated. confirmed this works in 4xp
I have no time to work on mozilla at the moment, so dougt is taking over FTP open ftp bugs -> him
Assignee: bbaetz → dougt
do we have any similar problems with HTTP?
Target Milestone: mozilla1.3alpha → Future
I don't know. I thought that username:password was not allowed in http:// URLs but some people think it is. This is probably an RFC 1738 vs. RFC 2396 kind of debate. Andreas+Darin: can you recall any bugs/design desicions about that?
username:password is allowed in http but not recommended. We support it in urls 100%. My guess, this is a problem in the population of the dialog.
I realized I could test this by typing a propery constructed URL, and the problem is indeed the HTTP auth dialog.
hmm, for http:// and https:// we strip out the username:password from the URL before sending it as the HTTP request-URI, but we _do not_ do this if the URL has some other scheme such as ftp://.
