A box popped up requesting id and password with an enter, cancel and close button. Tried to close or cancel the pop-up box and it respawned endlessly faster than I could close the dialog box and then close tab. With the pop-up box up, the browser was essentially locked up. I was forced to <CTRL><ALT><DEL> Firefox to get out of the loop and then not restore the page that was causing the problem. Reproducible: Didn't try
