Proxy authentication confirmation prompt keeps popping up although the user/password is saved

I'm using Firefox 17.0.1 I have a proxy configured which requires authentication. The username and password are stored in the password manager. However every time I restart Firefox it requires a confirmation of the user/password settings. How can I turn this off? I set the signon.autologin.proxy to true, as suggested in another post, but the confirmation request is still shown. Thanks!

Hello ideato

I set network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-proxies to false, as was suggested in other forums. I found that the following combination of settings finally made it work:

signon.autologin.proxy;true
network.proxy.share_proxy_settings – FALSE
network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-proxies – FALSE
network.auth.use-sspi – FALSE

With these settings, Firefox doesn't show a confirmation window at the startup anymore.
Thanks for your help,
