Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/535.11 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/17.0.963.83 Safari/535.11

Steps to reproduce:

Go to msdn for .NET documentation (http://msdn.microsoft.com/fr-fr/library/system.io.file.aspx for example) through an authenticating web proxy (Squid in our case, using NTLM). The page looks OK. Now change the programming language in the page with the tabs(C#,F#,etc...). You'll get prompted for proxy credentials even if you ask for them to be remembered. While clicking like a monkey for the page to finally display, authentication passes because you put the right credentials. Reload the page, change the language, and play the monkey again... With 400 people on the network, this becomes a nightmare.


Actual results:

Firebugs shows Firefox getting 407 errors while changing tab, but will never be able to its job : pass the credentials and let people work.


Expected results:

Firefox should not force users to use Chrome as this problem (and so many others) won't happen with it.
