Description

If you visit an ftp url (above) so that you get a password dialog, and you 
click cancel, then nothing happens. In the past we used to put up an 
"Authentication Failed" page, but I think it would be better to revert the 
location bar back to the current window's location (and possibly put up a 
dialog saying "ftp request canceled") (I don't like replacing the current page 
if I simply changed my mind and decided to cancel out of the ftp request).

note that in HTTP this works fine since HTTP carries a "failed auth" page with a 
401 response which we display correctly. So you'd have to go extra length to 
somehow convey to the webshell that auth failed and that it should go to the 
previous location.

Hey Jud,
I don't think that we should display a dialog if you cancel a request.  It is
almost the same as pressing the STOP button on the browser.  Do you think we
should pop up a dialog if you cancel out of the nsIAuthPrompt?

I'm brainwashed into the old 4.x world and expect the auth failed dialog. I
don't have any strong feelings about it either way though.

VERIFIED:

If you cancel FTP, you don't get a failed message in 4x.

I think you were thinking about having the wrong password, which does work
correctly in Mozilla 0.9 Win32.
