User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; GM_UserLogonTimeUTC: 2010-01-04 14:43:14; GM_UserLogonTimeBias: 300; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30; InfoPath.2; MS-RTC LM 8; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

The previous version of FireFox correctly used the proxy server.  This version will not longer authenticate.  
Your credentials could not be authenticated: "Credentials required.". You will not be permitted access until your credentials can be verified.
This is typically caused by an incorrect username and/or password, but could also be caused by network problems.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Happens on company proxy server page.  


Expected Results:  
Extranet should load.  

Firefox is not properly taking the login user name and password to verify the proxy server.

If your proxy server uses NTLM (you didn´t specify any details), it might be bug 535193.
