Torbutton 1.5 Causing Repeated HTTP Auth Prompts for Every Page
Tor Browser Bundle (2.3.25-4) includes Torbutton 1.5 which appears to invalidate HTTP authentication after each page is loaded when the http authentication is on the root directory of the website.
This message appears in the Error Console after entering the authentication information into the HTTP auth prompt:
Torbutton NOTE: Removing 3rd party HTTP auth for url: [scrubbed]
The result is that the user must enter the HTTP authentication information for each page on the website.
There was no issue in prior releases of the Tor Browser Bundle.
The expected behavior is that the browser should store the http authentication credentials until Active Logins are clear or a New Identity is selected.
