Switching from a non-SSL to a secure (SSL) page does not work when using a HTTP
proxy that required authentication.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the browser.
2. Get an environment with a proxy that required authentication and make sure
the proxy asks for authentication again when starting an SSL connection (i.e.
will not reuse the existing non-SSL proxy session.)
3. Bring up the non-SSL page. This will make Mozilla ask for the proxy username
and password.
3. Klick on a link on that page which points to a SSL page (like in many shops
when finishing the order)

Actual Results:  
The operation will time out leading you to believe the site was unavailable, but
it isn't. (Trying the very same with IE will lead to the proxy authentication
form popping up again and takes you to the site after supplying your credentials
once again.)

Expected Results:  
Either ask the user again to enter his/her proxy username/password OR reuse the
credentials entered before for the non-SSL session.

normally, this works.  something must be odd about your configuration. 
reporter: can you please provide a mozilla HTTP log using the following steps:

open a DOS prompt and type:

C:\> set NSPR_LOG_MODULES=nsHttp:5
C:\> set NSPR_LOG_FILE=C:\log.txt

now, run mozilla from the DOS prompt (be sure Mozilla is not already running):

C:\> cd \path\to\mozilla
C:\path\to\mozilla\> .\mozilla.exe

now, go and reproduce the problem.  exit the browser.  finally, upload log.txt
to this bug report or feel free to email it to me directly.  thx!

Log file of attempted NTLM proxy authentication with an SSL site.

I believe I have the same problem.  I'm using 1.4alpha1 with the new NTLM proxy
authentication feature.  This works well with ISA Server and normal HTTP;
however, when I try to use SSL, I get given a proxy authentication dialog, and
then nothing is displayed (current page remains displayed, that is).  I've
generated a log and uploaded it.
