Description

2 years ago
STR:

1. Open a page that asks for a htpasswd-based security, i.e. opens up the "Authentication Required" popup with "User Name" and "Password" fields.
2. Try to open another tab in the browser where you have your User Name and Password stored.

Observed: The password popup screen is modal and it is not possible to switch to another tab to find your credentials.

Expected: It should be possible to navigate other pages without obstruction even when one page is asking for credentials. (tested that this is how it works in Chrome)
