Description Jeff Balogh (:jbalogh) 2011-07-26 10:36:16 PDT includes a bunch of links like [1] which are protected by basic HTTP auth.

When I load the page in Firefox it prompts for auth once and then loads all the images.

When I load the page in Fennec it pops up 12 different auth prompts and I have to click through each one. Some of the prompts don't even invoke the password manager.

Our "sync" dialogs aren't really sync though, and so they're piling up on top of each other.

Also included some code to skip auth dialogs for proxy logins, but that's not what is going on here:

All this is just a slightly updated version of some desktop Firefox code from:

I assume 'let' would work here
