Issue with Login Prompt

  • Hi there! I have just started using Opera, and want to switch to using it as my development browser, as it utilizes the Chrome Developer Tools. I am not sure why DragonFly is not in the picture, but I assume because I created an Opera account using my Google credentials, it defaults to the Chrome Developer Tools when I open the panel? I have been using Firefox developer edition but up until recently, some things have changed and it's ended up to be a bit more cumbersome than I care to work with.

    I am having an issue where I open a site which prompts me with a login box, and I cannot complete the login; the login prompt closes before I can finish typing my username and password in. Is this a bug, or some sort of timeout setting I can configure so I can complete my login? In the background, while the web app is loading, it does pop up an error dialog (HTML) informing me I am unauthorized, thus the reason I need to provide credentials to read the data. So, I am not sure if the reason the login prompt is disappearing is due to the fact this error dialog is popping up. I have not had this issue in FFox or Chrome.

    Thanks!

  • Could also be the ad blocker or pop-up blocker, you might disable one or both for that site.

    DragonFly was something related to Opera Presto.

    And that site would be...?

  • Thanks for the replies. I am using SAP WebIDE to write UI5 apps, and when I run the preview, it opens a new window to load the app. I have already disabled the popup blocker for this URL. When the site loads, it prompts for a login, which is just a standard HTML prompt requesting username and password. I start typing in my username and password, but before I can complete, the login prompt box goes away. I was able to get around that by copy/pasting my password in (quicker than typing) and selecting 'save password' when prompted. The login request is actually coming form the backend; when the app requests data, it needs my network/user credentials.
