When you have multiple accounts at a web site (common for web development in
particular), and you choose not to log into any of them, and there's a login
form on, say, the sidebar of said web site, the password prompt will appear on
every page request.  This becomes a tedious process of hitting "Ok" or "Cancel"
at each request to move past the prompt, to say the least.

Perhaps it should assume on subsequent pages on the same web site that you don't
want to be prompted again, or at least have an option either in the dialog or in
the preferences for such behaviour.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create multiple accounts at a single web site.
2. Don't log in, but browse the web site.
3.
Product: Browser → Seamonkey

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
