Adding crash keyword
Gabriel -- are you still seeing this with a current build? Asa -- who could have such a web-proxy with authentification? Networking?
The bug has now changed behavior. In stead of crushing when I try to select the password input field, the browser crashes first wen I press the OK button. For making the browser crash I do following steps: 1. Set up the browser so that it uses the proxy server (width authentication). 2. Try to go to a site through the proxy 3. When the password dialog pops up I write the user name and the password. 4. I press the OK button. After step 4 the browser freezes for 2 seconds and then it crashes totally (the main window disappears). If at step 3 I check the "Remember these values. .... " button, then a window that tells me that, the values will be remembered, pups up, and then the browser crashes.
updating component and owner.
really updating default owner this time.
This bug is fixed too. The browser dose not crush any more and surfing to the proxy (width authentication) works very good. But the way mozilla remembers passwords for the proxy is a little strange. It seems that mozilla relates the proxy password to the site you try to visit the first time you use the proxy and not to the proxy you are surfing through. But I think that this is another bug and I will make a ny bug report for it soon.
