What Happens: Start up Firefox. Ensure that "restore session" is turned on. Ensure that there is a master password set for password saving. Visit a page that requires a password via HTTP Auth, logging in. Open the same page into multiple tabs. Quit Firefox. Start Firefox. Notice that a Master Password request and then a confirm HTTP Auth dialog is opened per tab. This is the same with all my extensions disabled or enabled (see below). What I Expected: The Master Password should be asked for only once. When an HTTP Auth username/password is confirmed on one tab/page, then I expect it to used for all tabs. System: Ubuntu 9.4 using the official Firefox.com version: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/2009042315 Firefox/3.0.10 Normally enabled extensions: * Firebug 1.3.3 * Google Gears 0.5.19.0 * Greasemonkey 0.8.20090123.1 * It's All Text! (latest, I'm the developer) * Master Password Timeout 0.2.7 * Stylish 1.0.1 * Tree Style Tab 0.7.2009051501 * Web Developer 1.1. I also have these extensions installed but normally disabled: * Clustybar 1.3.3 * Restarter 1.0 Notes: I thought this would have been reported before but I couldn't find it no matter what search terms I used.

Thanks. I couldn't believe that it hadn't been reported already.
