Netscape Build : 12/04/2000 Platform : Solaris2.8(sparc) To reproduce, (1) Launch the browser (2) Visit the URL http://www.onlinevarsity.com (3) Click on the 'Login' icon on left hand side of the page. (4) A authentication window comes up, asking for the username and password. Enter any invalid username and password and press 'ok' button. Actual result: -------------- The authentication window comes up again asking the user to enter the username,password again. Expected result: ---------------- A window saying 'Authorization failed' should comes up (Should give some indication that the username and password entered are invalid).This works fine on netscape 4.75.
Added the arch keyword. Authentication prompting is being changed, and this should be addressed in those changes.
Well reproduced under Linux(build 2001040805) and under WinNT(build 2001040604)

The looping could be just reading the 401 from cache again (lather; rinse; repeat;), or cancel could be reloading the page on the network. This bug is old, the desired behavior is described in a previous bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 43009 ***
