I have a webserver where navigating to html or xml pages with Chrome causes no problems, but I get a uname/password security prompt if I try to access the same links from either firefox or safari? What would cause this situation?

Thanks, Yarin

This could happen when you or someone else saved a username/password combination.

(Also, this should be moved to, since the question is about the client, not the server)

K thanks- if this is the only possibility then you're right, it's a client issue – Yarin Sep 29 '10 at 15:40
