Bug 646452 <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=646452>

We currently have a signon.autologin.proxy that is disabled by default.
When enabled, if a proxy needs a password and that password is saved,
Firefox will attempt to authenticate without prompting (and prompt if there
is a failure).

Is there any reason why we shouldn't enable it by default? I've mentioned
some possible reasons in comment
2<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=646452#c2> but
they don't seem that major to me.

If we can't enable it by default, I've proposed a UI preference in Bug
910670 <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=910670>. Does that
make sense?
