Details

1. go to web site that does js popup dialog authentication
2. cancel out of that dialog

Expected: Authorization Required
This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.

Actual: Blank page

Note:
1. this happens in Safari on iPhone as well.
what is 'js popup dialog authentication' ? Do you have an example URL?
