User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 (.NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 (.NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

I have membership to a site where the files are on a separate server and requires logging in. 

When you right-click, save-as the file, the user/pass prompt comes up, but click OK and Nothing happens. This is always true.

If you then proceed to left-click a different file, the user/pass prompt comes up, click OK, and works fine. BUT, the request for the first file still seems to be lost in some infinite redirect loop as you cannot left-click the first file, nothing will happen.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right-Click Save-As any file that is in a password protected area BEFORE logging in to that area through any other means.
2. Click ok on the prompt
3.
Actual Results:  
Nothing. That link is remembered and cannot be left-clicked or right-clicked for results, even if you proceed to authenticate your session to the password protected area from somewhere else. You must clear all active sessions and start over. 

Expected Results:  
Logged In successfully, then produced the save-as dialogue box for the file.
