Save tab that require a proxy on restart of firefox generates tons of proxy username and password boxes.  So much so that you end up having to close the auth windows, then the tabs, and then go to the internet again to get prompted to enter your proxy password once.  If all of the tabs are using the same proxy, why can it not display a single proxy window for the first tab require proxy auth and use it for the remaining tabs.  This is on all versions, just require proxy auth to use the internet, configure firefox to save tabs on quit, and quit firefox and start it again. bam.. annoying...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
just require proxy auth to use the internet
configure firefox to save tabs on quit
open 15 tabs to different sites
quit firefox
start it again. 
firefox loads saved state and a hunderd proxy auth boxes

Actual Results:  
bam.. annoying...

Expected Results:  
firefox loads saved state and a hunderd proxy auth boxes
