Request fails to send files when authentication is required
I have to correct the "Actual results" information. Mentioned requests were seen with 'Web-Developer' plugin. Surprisingly, with enabled 'network' module of 'Firebug' plugin, things are working as expected. Problems still persist when firefox is started in safe-mode (e.g. neither 'Web-Developer' nor 'firebug' plugins are active).
Could you provide a living testcase (online html webpage showing the issue), please.
Online test at http://www.cvg.de/test/putfile.html But problem can be seen only on server side (no second request), sniffing network traffic or with debugging. Attached script might be more helpful. It is to be used like socat TCP4-LISTEN:8001,fork,reuseaddr EXEC:"`pwd`/test-put" and pointing firefox to http://localhost:8001 Script should show three requests (GET, PUT (401) and final PUT (201)), but firefox is missing the last one.

Enrico, would you be able to check whether this is reproducible in previous versions of Firefox as well? You can find old versions at ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/.
Firefox 3.6.18 (WinXP 32bit) shows the error when using GSSAPI/SPNEGO auth; basic auth seems to work with this version. Firefox 17.0.8 (RHEL6.4, 64bit) fails with basic auth [AppleWebKit/534.34 (KHTML, like Gecko) konqueror/4.10.5 Safari/534.34 and AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/28.0.1500.95 Safari/537.36 work both with GSSAPI and basic auth]
