Mozilla (tested in Mozilla 1.6, 1.7, Firefox 0.9-1.0PR) incorrectly send base64
encoded username (maybe password) to http proxy. I'am use sniffer to track this
and decode basic authorization header. He contains abracadabra, not my cyrillic
username and password! Latin names decodes correctly.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter cyrillic username and/or password on proxy.
Actual Results:  
Displays message "Invalid username or password"
