Description

found while using opt comm bits, 2000.05.12.08. this problem (signing onto the
HTML Writers' Guild interactive site) is at its worst on linux, somewhat
annoying on winNT, and [oddly] non-existent [so far] on Mac.

to repro:
1. go to the above url, http://interact.hwg.org/cgi-bin/WebX
2. use "Mozilla Testing" for the name field, and "123" for the password field
(no quotes for either, o'course).
3. click Login button.

results:

a. on linux, i get a Confirm (Yes, Never, No to save the username/passwd)
dialog. regardless of what i click (and often before i even have a chance to
respond to the Confirm one), the extrawide Security Warning dialog appears. then
another Confirm dialog appears. and another. and another. ad infinitum. i end up
killing my browser session because it gets so annoying.

b. on winNT,  i get a Confirm (Yes, Never, No to save the username/passwd)
dialog. regardless of what i click (and often before i even have a chance to
respond to the Confirm one), the extrawide Security Warning dialog appears. then
another Confirm dialog appears, and another. not as bad as on linux (only 3
copies of Confirm dialog), but still annoying.

c. on Mac, i get a Confirm (Never, No, Yes) dialog, and am not interrupted by
the Security Warning dialog.

I'm not seeing this behavior at all (on windows) with a tree that I pulled this 
morning.  So I'll mark it as works-for-me.  If you can still reproduce it on 
monday, reopen and I'll investigate further.

But what is this new dialog that you get on almost every form submission -- "Any 
information you submit is insecure and could be observed by a third part."  
Who's putting this up (it's not me).  Doug, is this yours?

Sarah, you might want ot open a separate bug about this new dialog saying that 
it is annoying if it occurs on every form submission.

things are [somehow] acting sane now, using today's opt comm bits, 2000.05.15.08
[tested on linux and winNT].
