<auth> Proxy doesnt work


(Core :: Networking, defect, P3, major)

Windows 98





(Reporter: Glenn.McGrath, Assigned: gagan)


Hi, im on a network that requires a proxy configuration to get outside the lan.

Under advanced setup i set the autoproxy to my proxy setup, however i cant get
outside the lan.

Under netscape communicator and ie5 a dialog box pops up where i enter my proxy
username and password, but i dont get this with mozilla M9.

Im not sure wether this feature is supposed to work yet, i tried searching for
bugs relating to proxy but found none(maybe i didnt search correctly)

Unfortunatly i cant use mozilla untill it can work with a (my networks) proxy.

This is what i get from apprunner.exe maybe the error code means something to

Doing Proxies startup...
Looking up prefwindow object...
Creating prefwindow object...
FindShortcut: in=''  out='null'
Error: Can't load: (804b0001)
Error loading URL
Document: Done (1.7 secs)
When i run ProxyTest.exe the text it spews out looks like its worked, but it
crashes, relevent info follows.
Im not familiour with how the proxy test works, so i cant judge if its a fair
test for my problem.

PROXYTEST caused an invalid page fault in

sorry if this is the wrong bug. I can connect through a proxy set up using
workaround in bug#8559. However, viewer.exe still won't work, only apprunner. I
can open apprunner when viewer has failed and it amkes a connection jsut fine.
Vier returns this:
Error: Can't Load: (804b000d)

Resolution: --- → INVALID
viewer doesn't have proxy configurations set up since they come from
preferences. BTW proxytest is not a test for HTTP Proxies its for proxy events
across different threads. Marking this bug invalid then...
Please note original description as posted by  This is
the correct problem description, and it is a bug for me as well.  Viewer and
proxytest are not part of the problem.
Resolution: INVALID → ---
Clearing INVALID resolution due to reopen of this bug.
