STR:

  1. on Nightly with no active http auth sessions, click https://jigsaw.w3.org/HTTP/Basic/
  2. hit [esc] to cancel the dialog (note: keyboard is important - clicking "cancel" works correctly)

ER:
If using app/window modal prompts, the page navigates to a page saying "Unauthorized access"

AR:
if using tabmodal prompts, the page stops navigating and you're still looking at this bugzilla report. :-)

:pbz, is this bug important enough to require an uplift?
