Fire­fox 3.6, final­ly deliv­er­ing a sane proxy han­dling

At work we have to use a proxy which requires autho­riza­tion. With pre­vi­ous ver­sions (fire­fox 3.0.x and 3.5.y for each valid x and y) I had the prob­lem that each tab request­ed to enter the mas­ter pass­word when start­ing fire­fox, to be able to fill in the proxy-auth data (short­cut: fill in only the first request, and for all oth­ers just hit return/OK). So for each tab I had to do some­thing for the master-password, and after that for each tab I also had to con­firm the proxy-auth stuff.

Very annoy­ing! Oh, I should maybe men­tion that as of this writ­ing I have 31 tabs open. Some­times there are more, some­times there are less.

Now with fire­fox 3.6 this is not the case any­more. Yeah! Great! Final­ly only one time the mas­ter pass­word stuff, and then one time the proxy-auth stuff, and then all tabs pro­ceed.

It took a long time since my first report about this, but now it is final­ly there. This is the best improve­ment in 3.6 for me.
