User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2
Build Identifier: Firefox 1.0PR, downloaded from http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/download.html?http%3A//ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/0.10/Firefox%20Setup%201.0PR.exe

When using an NTLM-authenticated proxy, one must re-click the authentication OK
dialog (when using saved username/password) for every connection/element in a
given page.  This is/was not an issue in Firefox 0.9.2.  Downgrading to 0.9.2
fixes the problem.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure proxy settings
2. Attempt to connect to news.google.com
3. Enter proxy authentication credentials, click checkbox to save credentials,
click OK.
4. Be prompted for credentials, with username/password already filled out, for
every image on the page.

Actual Results:  
See reproduction steps.

Expected Results:  
It should have asked for credentials only once, then used saved credentials
without user interaction.
