When a .htpassword file exists in a webserver directory a password dialog box is preseted to the user by the browser. In M15 this box can be completed but authentication fails and the dialog box represented, now entries can no longer be filled in and in the latest nightly(23-05) build (M16) the password entry can not be filled in at all. This error is produced at the term window when this occurs: Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkwindow.c: line 1707 (gdk_window_get_parent): assertion `window != NULL' failed.
HTTP basic authentication bug. Reassigning to gagan.

Confirmed, using the May 22 nightly on GNU/Linux. Setup a simple test URL at: http://klamath.dyndns.org/secret/ , username mozilla, password mozilla. I didn't get the GTK error (I didn't try very hard though). Interestingly, you cannot type text into the 'password' dialog, but you can paste text into it.
I believe that this is a dup of the very popular bug #27784, although this bug report includes the useful workaround information that one can actually paste the password in and it's just typing that's the problem.
This is not a dup of 27784. warren: is this related to your recent fixes for single signon?

confirming bug, I see this too on linux. There seem to some duplicates of this bug, raising priority, this is a must for M16 I think.

I'm also seeing this - it used to work, back in late April's nightlies. This was with an older style auth popup. Since the newer style of auth dialog was introduced, it's just not allowing keyboard input into the password field. This makes it hard to use Mozilla for Zope :-( For me, it fails on a Redhat 6.2 system, GTK 1.2.6.
i'm noticing that after the gtk error message shows up, clicking cancel causes mozilla to crash
Jae, the crash on cancel was bug 41404 which is fixed now (2000060508). By the way, this seems to work fine now, compared to a 5/21 build. I get "Authorization granted" when trying to access Neil's test page. Recommend WORKSFORME. By the way, if tabbing from "username" to "password" doesn't work correctly, then that's bug 30221 "Tab order problem in basic auth username & password box".
Confirmed nightly 2000-06-04-20 seems to work Ok now...
