Is there some method to prevent Windows (or the browser) from popping up the proxy authentication dialog every time I open a browser? Surely there should be some setting to use my user name and password automatically?
The saved information does appear in the pop-up authentication window, I want to avoid the pop-up entirely (since it serves no purpose, and gets annoying as I have to click it hundreds of times)
Note that I have no access to the proxy server itself, or know what type it is.
In case this information is necessary - Wireshark shows the following
CONNECT www.google.com:443 HTTP/1.1 User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:23.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/23.0 Proxy-Connection: keep-alive Connection: keep-alive Host: www.google.com HTTP/1.1 407 Proxy Authentication Required Proxy-Authenticate: BASIC realm="InetPass" Cache-Control: no-cache Pragma: no-cache Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8 Proxy-Connection: close Set-Cookie: BCSI-CS-e9e87a9198535326=2; Path=/ Connection: close Content-Length: 1785
(HTML page follows, displayed if authentication fails)
Thanks in advance
Found a solution for Firefox (version 23) from here (comment by Sherwin).
In about:config, set
signon.autologin.proxy to true.
The other settings given in the blog entry had no effect.
Now I wonder whether there is a generic solution for all browsers, or at least for IE.
