read the known issues list in the release notes BEFORE filing bugs. Thank you.
I beleive this is a duplicate of Bug 205947. The Thunderbird 0.7 release notes may be found at <http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/releases/> and do mention "HTTP Proxy Authentication and Thunderbird" problems.
(In reply to comment #1) > read the known issues list in the release notes BEFORE filing bugs. Thank you. The release notes for thunderbird v0.8 do not mention this bug but it still exists. One way to work around it is to open the address book and click on any email address that grabs and icon from external sources (aol for example). THe proxy auth box will pop right up and it all works thereafter. But it's a pain to have to remember to do that before reading the mail.
David Berlioz: per comment 4, are you still seeing this issue with current builds (since the patch for bug 205947 went in)?
