Strange Passwd dialog displays randomly Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi there, i have an issue where if OW is left open for some period of time which is undetermined i get this strange password required dialog box usually of some domain which has no reference to ANY web page i have loaded in a tab.

I shall attach one of these images perhaps someone knows anything about this strange behavior.

How are you determining that? Did you dig through the source of every open page?

My observation is based on the notion that none of the web sites id had open in the current session were Australian. The sites were US based. If you notice the dialog is an education au host.

Right, but unless you viewed the source on every page and every linked file, it's tough to make that call.

Chances are an image or other file that's built into one of the pages is hosted on that edu site and the user has setup htaccess there. When the page loads, the password prompt displays. It could also be a page where images are swapped in and out after the page loads. One of the images is on that server, and so the password prompt displays when that image is loaded and well after the page has loaded.
 
Still this is a very strange, for one, the browser can be completely idle for 10 mins and these dialogs show up from no activity, and two i visit the similar pages in any other browser and ive NEVER seen these dialogs pop up.

I can understand if i load a page which requires this type of access but as i say this is NOT the case here, these dialogs are completely random popping up from nowhere not after i've loaded a new page. I've used the 3 w's long enough to determine the difference between a page which requires login access and some phantom freaky behavior which im seeing here :confused: :eek: Little green men in this browser me thinks

Great, a page could be set to load the problem image 10 minutes after you first go to the site. Or there could be a meta refresh. Tons and tons of possibilities.

Unless you've gone through every line of code in all the windows, every nested file, every file that loads on a timer (and if there's ajax or flash involved you probably wont be able to get all of them) you can't say that for sure.

Well, I'm going to post an example with this post. Now imagine I had full control over this site, and this was done on a timer.

Forest, thanks for being patient with me. BUT that dialog aint what im getting man, it aint a sheet like that. The dialog I get pops up in the middle of the page an can be moved around an again its the same dialog everytime with the exact same host in it

(I've edited my other post so the example doesn't keep popping up.)

What's interesting is, the link in your error log provides a sheet rather than a popup window. I still think it's one page somewhere on one of the sites you have open that's causing the issue.
 
Drayon,

Do you by any chance have this page in your bookmarks? If it's set to check for updates you'll get the pop-up dialog since OmniWeb needs authorization to check the site.

Ahhh, yes. That would explain why clicking on the link in the error log results in a "sheet" dialog but why he's getting a popup dialog. It would also explain why he doesn't get this in other browsers, and it's seemingly random.

It also explains why you're the one getting paid by Omni and I'm not :)
