I'm connected to the web behind a corporate proxy with a ".pac"

Where I start FF, the proxy ask me an user/psw, that's the normal way. But after a while (around 5'), the proxy session seems to be lost and FF return the error page "proxy server refused connection"

This problem have appeared with the version 3.0.10 and I must use the previous version (3.0.9) to surf on the web.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start FF
2. type user/psw authentication to pass thru the proxy
3. 5' later "proxy server refused connection"
4. anable to sign up again
5. shut down FF
Actual Results:  
FF don't crach but it's not possible to surf behind an authenticating proxy

Does it work again if you switch Firefox manually to the offline mode and back online with File/offline instead of shutting down Firefox ?

I did some tests with the 3.5.1 (I know that the pbl will not be resolve but sometime.....) .
I change my network conf. I declare a proxy : one of the two proxy that I found in the automatic proxy conf.
That's work ! The proxy ask me to sign up and I could read the Google search home page. But for some other urls like , it's dont work. With the second proxy too.

In the "proxy.pac", the return is something like this :
    return "PROXY; PROXY"; is using https and not http

In a certain way, this remind me that I should bring you back some more log with the latest versions. Give me 2 or 3 weeks and the weakness of mind to answer.

So the last try with : 
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; fr; rv: Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3

With this version I used the new configuration "Use system proxy settings"

Firefox don't bug, but after a while, it loses the proxy session.

When I'm connected with IE, the proxy session is not lost or refound !

I don't find how to get a log.

I think you just have 2 proxies and therefore need 2 credentials.. they are collected on demand.
