Upon view-source on file behind .htaccess OR upon print on file behind .htaccess, browser crashes


(Toolkit :: Printing, defect)

Firefox 85



Tracking Status
firefox85 --- affected


(Reporter: frederic.blanc, Unassigned, NeedInfo)


(Keywords: crash)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:85.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/85.0

Steps to reproduce:

File protected in directory that has .htaccess restricting access. .htaccess fully functionnal, everything was working fine prior current version, also works fine on Chrome + Edge
Pressing CTRL+U asks for htaccess credentials instead of displaying source, where already connected.
Pressing CTRL+P simply crashes the browser : opens the dialog, but neither cancel or print answers.

Actual results:

Crash of the browser upon print attempt.

Expected results:

Should print and not crash :)

Sorry if I didn't explain well enough. This is not a "crash", it's a complete freeze of Firefox, and it had to be killed through windows task manager. This didn't generate any crash report.

When you say "behind .htaccess" do you mean it requires Basic Auth credentials? Does this still reproduce?

I just tried view source and print for a website requiring basic auth and it worked on Windows 10 Nightly 95.0a1 (2021-10-17).
