User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:7.0a2) Gecko/20110802 Firefox/7.0a2
Build ID: 20110802042011

Steps to reproduce:

Typed about:permissions into url.

Actual results:

When permissions page loaded (no specific site selected), it popped up a basic authentication for a site I had saved basic auth credentials.

Expected results:

Basic Auth popup should not appear.

Also, when I have 'All Sites' selected and search in the Saved Passwords box for the site that has the saved basic auth credentials it shows up.  But when I find the site in the about:permissions box, it says '0 passwords are saved for this website'.

Confirmed against Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0a1) Gecko/20110802 Firefox/8.0a1 ID:20110802025715.

Maybe Basic Auth Prompts should be suppressed (no Usage?) when about:permissions is loaded?

I believe this is caused by bug 670341, which is more of a problem with the favicon service API.

The fix for bug 670341 was just pushed to mozilla-central. Could you try out the latest Nightly build tomorrow and see if this problem still exists?
Comment 5 User image Stephen Sagers 2011-08-04 09:08:15 PDT
I certainly will.  I will let you know tomorrow if it works.

For me it's fixed. Tested against Tinderbox Build what contains the Fix for Bug 670341.
Comment 7 User image Stephen Sagers 2011-08-05 08:01:50 PDT
I've confirmed that nightly no longer brings up the basic auth window when opening about:permissions.

On a somewhat related note - I am still seeing the issue from Comment #1.  Should I open a separate ticket for that?  Thanks.
