Description Luca Foppiano 2008-07-01 07:29:06 UTC
Description of problem: I'm using a proxy with authentication process. I set my proxy with "network proxy preferences" and i set also username/password, but when I try to launch firefox (configured to read system proxy configuration) it ask me username/password, the same is with epiphany. With pidgin it seems to work, so probably this is a problem of browsers. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): firefox-3.0-1.fc9.x86_64 epiphany-2.22.2-2.fc9.x86_64 pidgin-2.4.2-1.fc9.x86_64 control-center-126.96.36.199-1.fc9.x86_64 How reproducible: Set proxy and authentication (user/pass), then launch firefox or epiphany. It should ask you usename/password. Steps to Reproduce: 1. set proxy 2. set authentication 3. launch firefox/epiphany Actual results: Firefox and epiphany ask user/password Expected results: Firefox and epiphany shouldn't ask user/password Additional info: dunno if is a control-center bug.

This is a problem with the applications themselves. The only thing the control-center does is setting a few GConf keys. To be honest, I don't know whether firefox reads the GNOME configuration or not these days, and whether epiphany does its own thing or not. I'm reassigning that to Firefox, they'd know whether another bug should be opened for Epiphany.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '9'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 17:49:16 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
