Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150513174244

Steps to reproduce:

Go to New York Times after having already logged in (with remember me enabled). Click on various pages.


Actual results:

Even though I am logged in and no password is required by the site, the Firefox password required dialog appears. Pressing cancel allows page navigation. This appears to have started with the current version.


Expected results:

The password required dialog should not appear as there is no password input on the page.

Note that this happens sometimes with any page of www.nytimes.com

The following is for 

http://www.nytimes.com/pages/politics/index.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&region=TopBar&module=HPMiniNav&contentCollection=Politics&WT.nav=page

There is no login input object on the screen on this page, because I am already logged in.

I can refresh the same page, and get the following (with no Firefox password request)
