Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

The first time that you try and access a password protected (NTLM) proxy, you
get asked for your username and password.  You can then choose to remember the
password or not.  This seems to work.
However, if you try and change the password being used and have the remember
password box checked, the new password doesn't seem to be updated (as after
reboot and restart of Firefox I can't just click OK - I have to change my
password again).

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up initial proxy password on Firefox startup
2. Change your proxy password
3. Reboot(?) and start Firefox and update password ensuring Remember password
box is checked
4. Reboot(?) and start Firefox and try clicking OK


Actual Results:  
Password is "rejected" and password must be manually changed again.

Expected Results:  
Password should be remembered from your previous change.

Apologies for not trying to reproduce this but time is a bit tight for me to
play around at the moment...  Also sorry if this bug isn't that well described :)

This is still a problem in 1.0PR - can someone actually confirm this issue?

Hmm on second reading of my previous comment it might sound a bit pushy - didn't
mean it to be like that :) Really meant to say something like has anyone been
able to confirm it...

Everyone,

I can confirm that this is happening to me at the Golden Nugget as well under
Windows 2000. 

I am using: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2

I have seen this exactly as described on Windows 2000, Firefox [Mozilla/5.0
(Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0].  

The only way to get Firefox to accept the changed password is to go into "View
Saved Passwords,"  delete the entry for the Web host, then enter the username
and new password on a new login.
