Basic Authentication fails when I attempt it, and the server complains about the Authentication string it received. After the first attempt, the username and password fields change color and will not accept text any more.
On RedHat 6.0, with Milestone 10, I got the authentication window, and submitted it (clicked "OK") (this is step 1). It popped up a couple more times (four? five?) without being able to accept input I dismissed them in either by clicking cancel, or by closing the dialogs window. I even hit Mozilla's stop button at one point. The page loaded then loaded, using Basic Authentication just fine (step 2), although the image on the page didn't load (it used the alt text instead of the gif). After this, I tried manually typing the URL to a page on the sub web (this is the same session) and it behaved as in Step 2 (none of the dialogs allowed input), only it didn't actually load the page. I tried cancelling the dialog, hitting ok, closing the dialogs window, but I couldn't get it to actually load the page in the same manner as the last one. I'd get a more reliable repro case where it actually loads, but my machine's 200 mhtz, and not quite up to Mozilla's present incarnation.
the basic auth is not persistent right now (ie. the login/passwd is not being saved for subsequent requests to the same server) have a dupe somewhere.
