http://img167.imageshack.us/img167/4553/captureij3.jpg < HTTP Authentication

What happens is when you click and drag a tab that will end up asking you for HTTP Authentication, BEFORE the actual Authentication window pops up, 'OK' and 'Cancel' and the Closing 'X' are no longer clickable.

However you can type in the username box, press TAB, enter the password, and press enter. If you do it via your keyboard (as the OK is highlighted by default)...pressing enter works.

Pressing Escape closes it, which also still works.

Please see the Steps to reproduce, and keep in mind this has to be done FAST (as the authentication window, depending on your internet connection will pop up fast)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a page with HTTP Authentication
2. Before the Authentication window pops up (so before it loads), start to move the tab some other place on the tab bar.
3. Try and click OK, Cancel or X

Actual Results:  
'OK' and 'Cancel' and the Closing 'X' in the Authentication Window are no longer clickable

Expected Results:  
Should be able to click 'OK', 'Cancel' and Closing 'X' button.

I encountered this with Firefox 3.5 on Windows Vista. I tested Mac OS X 10.5, but it didn't occur on that OS. User agents:

Does not occur on:
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5

If you no longer see this issue, please close this bug as RESOLVED, WORKSFORME. If you do see the bug, please post a comment.

I can confirm that the bug is _still_ present in the most recent nightly of Firefox.
I think it is likely that this will get fixed by bug 613785. When bug 613785, let's review this and see.
Depends on: 613785
