Then periodically (several times a day), I can go back to the same newsgroup(s) and get asked for a ID and password again. The system does not "crash" as it did in 1.3, rather it goes ahead and works. Still needs to have a universal newsgroup password feature as entering a separate username and password for ten different newsgroups is a BIG hassle! Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.It just happens sometimes. I do not know how to reproduce. It seems to happen with about the same frequecy (ever 1 to 5 hours of operation) as the "browser locks up completely and causes windows 2000 to crash completely" problem. 2. 3.
I'm also seeing this problem with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030408 maybe duplicate with http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201749
I decided that maybe the problem had something to do with multiple NG windows open at once. Since I now make sure that only one NG window is open at a time, the problem has stopped happening. Perhaps this is a "clue" for looking into the problem.

In response to comment #2: I'm still with Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; de-AT; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030313, becuase of Multizilla still having some issues with bugs in 1.4, but here it happens all the time and I really can't predict under which circumstances the next PW verification happens and I'm using only a single mail/news window. BTW, does the NNTP protocol force the use of 2 sequential windows for 1. Username and then 2. PW, rather than a single one, asking for both informations?
Wolfi - see bug 201750 regarding the separate dialogs.
