You must provide both login/password at each start of the browser... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start Firefox 3.0b3 (with Proxy enabled) Actual Results: Empty login/password popup appears Expected Results: The Login/password popup should remember the last values (if you check a corresponding checkbox of course).
Do you not get a notification bar on the page being loaded?

Ok, then nothing is broken. :-) > However: I think that the use of this "notification bar" is non obvious, and I > don't understand why the proxy is handled in the same way as the web sites. This was changed to a notification bar because with the old way, you didn't have any way to know if the login you were saving was actually going to work. Proxy logins are handled the same as other logins, because the primary reason for that checkbox is for people who don't want the browser to remember their logins for anything. There's a bug on improving what it says, which I'd like to change in some future release.
