closing the first window, then using the secondary window to re-access the same
http/https site does not prompt for user/password information.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 2 browser windows
2. Access an https site (say webmail) with first window, sign in with user and
password information.  Close window
3. enter URL for same site in the remaining open window, you will not be
prompted for user/password information again.

Actual Results:  
Not being prompted for user and password information.

Expected Results:  
Required to re-authenticate.
This is a result of a session cookie set by the web site, not remembered
passwords. Bug 117222 deals with the issue of limiting session cookie scope to
windows or sets of windows or tabs, which would produce your expected results here.
