    I have a peculiar problem with Firefox 3 (latest version)

    In my office I am behind a proxy for browsing which requires a username and password. I enter the password and ask Firefox to remember it. But every now and then it repeatedly asks me to re-enter the password and username (both are saved, i just have to keep clicking OK on the auth dialog box)

    I searched the internet for the problem and found that I had to change certain keys in Firefox about:config. I did that but it still wont work. I think I am behind NTLM authentication. Any ideas?
