If you open a password request URL in one window, then in another window open the same URL, the page will not load therefore not provide another password request until the initial one is closed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a URL with a password request dialogue.
2.Open a NEW WINDOW, open the SAME URL.
Actual Results:  
Grey screen loop while waiting for data.

Expected Results:  
These are only suggestions: Say "awaiting password in another window" or bring up the other page

I logged in to Gmail, opened a new window and it logged in automatically.
Sorry, disregard comment 1. I don't know what you mean with a password request. The password confirmation dialog? I can't open another window while the dialog is open.

Password request dialog box/apache password, eg. cpanel.noobnet.com.au.

Open two windows, go to window1 and open http://cpanel.noobnet.com.au, go to window2 and open the same window.
