Is this a regression? This sounds like it's not specific to captive portal and would apply to all notification bars.

I don't think this is a regression, I encounter the same problem with the out of date notification bar, but the captive portal notification bar has some improvements comparing with out of date: the close button is working and also the "Show login page" is also working. When I say working I am referring to the fact that the text from this two is read with Voice Over.
