When I go to log in to a site that requires HTTP authentication, the dialog named "Prompt" comes up with its focus on the "OK" button. In Mozilla, the focus is in the username field, which is much more convenient if you don't habitually save your passwords.
What version are you using ? This is probably Bug# 172194 which occured just before milestone 0.2 and fixed in 0.3 See http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?branch=HEAD&file=mozilla/xpfe/global/resources/content/commonDialog.js&date=month for the history. Also Bug# 172038, 172166, 172341, and possibly others (just learning bugzilla), still marked new/open which are the same bug.
works for me linux 10/19. the http auth dialog has initial focus in the username field.
jenn, I'm resolving this WFM since it looks like this was fixed. if you still see this behaviour in recent builds, reopen this bug.
