Proxy authentication prompt required for addon update upon loading of firefox
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/22.214.171.124 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/188.8.131.52 If the firefox connection is established via a proxy server, when an extension update is detected upon the initial loading of firefox, no authentication prompt is displayed when choosing to update. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Configure the firefox internet connection via a proxy server 2. Have an addon installed and out-of-date 3. Restart firefox and it will prompt for update of the outdated addon. 4. Click the update button Actual Results: The update process will fail as the prompt to authenticate does not occur and therefore the internet connection can't be established. Expected Results: A prompt to authenticate is displayed prior to the download beginning for the addon updates. Upon <any> internet connection being required, a check should be in place to ensure that authentication has occurred if using a proxy server.
