User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 I connect to the internet in work through a proxy server. When I launch M$ internet exploder it always displays a dialogue asking me for my connection credentials and then will proceed to let me use the internet. Mozilla too presents me with a dialogue asking for my connection credentials - but only some of the time - approx 1 out of 10 times! Some days it will not ask me at all and just presents me with an alert box with the following message: "The connection was refused when attempting to contact www.mozilla.org". It's not just mozilla - it is ANY website at all. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Require proxy authentication to access the web 2. Try to connect requiring the proxy authentication 3. Try closing Mozilla and re-opening it at various stages Actual Results: I get a connection refused alert box instead of the dialogue asking me for the proxy credentials. Expected Results: Presented me with the dialogue box requesting proxy authentication and proceeded to let me browse the web. I cannot find anywhere to force Mozilla to ask me for proxy details. Maybe it is being TOO user friendly ??
can you try latest nightly build ? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk If issue still occur, please post a HTTP log from a minimal session via 'create a new attachment', see instructions here: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/netlib/http/http-debugging.html

Same problem here. With Firefox 1.0 (20041115). I need to connect through the college proxy server to access some articles on research journals. With IE everything ok. Before displaying first page it asks for user/pwd. With Firefox, nothing... well, the curious fact is that with the "Automatic proxy configuration URL" active I can navigate but not through the proxy. (I know it because when I connect to www.sciencedirect.com with IE it identify me as if I were connecting through my college).
Gorka, does this happen w/ a new profile? Do you know what kind of proxy you are using?
Summary: Proxy username and password request dialogue does not appear most of the time → Proxy username and password dialogue does not always appear
After the problems, I tried the trunk and with it everything was fine. Now, I try a new 1.0 installation from scratch and everything is just fine. I thought it was a clean installation before... (november). Sorry then for the false alarm... :( G.
Keith, how about you?
