I have an proxy served internet connection. Proxy requires login and password.
When i'am udating plugins from plugins manager in browser window - all ok.
But when plugins update is running automaticly during firefox startup downloading of the plugin file fails.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Configure FireFox to use proxy requiring autentification. Mine proxy is on port 8080.
1. Start FireFox, with not lastest plugin.
2. Plugin update window rises and tells me about aviable updates.
3. Click "Download update".
4. Failure window rises.
Actual Results:  
After clicking OK in failure window, browser continues to load and working perfectly, plugins should be updated, weren't updated. Updating plugins manually works perfectly, like all other.

Expected Results:  
I think proxy autorisation window sould occur after "Download update" button was clicked.

That situation was seen when updating FlashGot plugin to version on Russian language version of FireFox. Think windows and button names may be little different from described here, but main sense should be clear.
Version: unspecified → 2.0 Branch
I think you mean Add-ons (or extensions) rather than Plugins (Java, Flash etc). Either way this is a dupe ...

Yes, I ment Add-ons. Have read bug 312473, think it's the same.
