I tried to open http://165.227.66.97/as/ff/indexx.php?pn=KDg4OCkgODM1LTMxNDU= but the server returns 404.

Hi Marco, could you try to provide more details or describe the problem more specifically? Do you have steps to reproduce or another test url?

Thanks.

Unfortunately I don't know what the website was doing specifically and these kinds of websites tend to disappear very quickly.

FYI, I took a look earlier and all it did was bringing up another auth dialog when you dismissed the previously shown one so that it was hard to get to closing the tab in the short time between the one window-modal dialog being down and the next one coming up.
