User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 When using Firefox 1.0pre accessing the Internet via a Microsoft ISA 2000 proxy server I get multiple username/password prompts, seems to be for every item on the page. Firefox 0.9.3 did not have this problem. The problem only occurs on clients that are NOT in the same domain as the ISA proxy. Clients that are members of the same domain as the ISA proxy work correctly without any prompts at all. Firefox 1.0 is barely usable under these circumstances. A colleague of mine suggests that this is a fault in Firefox's handling of NTLM dialog. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. set proxy settings to point to ISA proxy server 2. browse website e.g. www.ibm.com 3. Actual Results: This example site generates 6 username/password prompts Expected Results: For clients not in the domain one username/password prompt at start of session For clients in the domain, no prompts at all
This is definitly a dupe, but I can't find the right one
I would like to confirm this bug report. I am not sure about our proxy specification, but it is a Microsoft proxy which requires NTLM authorization. Things worked fine in Firefox 0.9.3 once the initial password for the proxy was confirmed. Firefox 1.0pre does show the right password in the remembered password lists, it just is not reused and each HTTP request triggers the password prompt again.
please download and test Firefox 1.0rc1: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/1.0rc1/ *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 256949 ***
