Okay, it was just a guess :)

Is this a regression? Can you reproduce it with other browser, too?
I can reproduce the bug with Firefox 3.6.14, if it is a regression, it's an old one.
Summary: Tinderboxpushlog failed to load with NTML proxy → Tinderboxpushlog failed to load with NTLM proxy
What happens if you go to http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/Firefox/status.html directly? Is that also blocked?
It works without problem.
For some reason, it seems that the ajax call done by the main page don't use the already saved proxy authentication.
It's strange, because other site with ajax request (gmail for example) don't have this problem.
OK, I have no idea what to do here.
I've thinked about. The difference between this Ajax calls and others is that on tbpl thé request is cross domain.
In that case Firefox do not send cookies neither proxy authentication.
I understand the security implication for cookies or site authentication, but it's bad for proxies.
