    Twice this morning I've gotten a pop-up on HTF with the title Authentication Required.
    The body says:

    A username and password are being requested by http://ushepublicity.com. The site says: "ushepublicity.com"

    followed by two fields, Username and Password. There's no other text or identification.

    I'm able to "X" out of it, but this is totally new. I have no idea whether it's being generated just on this site, or if it's coincidence that this is where I've been reading and posting this morning, and it might happen elsewhere, too.

    Do you know specifically where you are at in the forum when
    this pop-up appears, Charles?

    I'm just reading threads from my "New Content" page, clicking on the dot to go to unread responses, or going back to my own "New Content" bookmark.

    Sorry, I'm sure you need something way better than that to go on! Or does that help at all?

    I am a little concerned on a specific level....

    I have recently posted press material obtained from the
    Universal press site. It's in the Steven Spielberg Blu-ray
    Collection thread.

    I am wondering if something in the HTML coding has
    carried over that is causing browser pop-ups to occur.

    The other concern, tied in with this issue, is that I am on
    a Developer Preview operating system. I am wondering if
    any instabilities in the browser may be introducing code into
    the press releases I post.

    This may be the problem, may not be. However, your issue
    with a USHE pop-up does sound like a result of something
    I may have posted earlier today.

    If I knew exactly what location is triggering it, I could probably
    look at the coding.

    Okay, if it happens again, I'll FREEZE and document exactly where I was and what I did.

    Bingo!

    Just got it after clicking on, and entering, the Spielberg box thread.

    That is where the problem lies.

    I would guess, specifically, page 3 where the disc specs are posted.

    Give me 10 minutes...

    Yep. It's repeatable when going to the latest post, doesn't happen going to the top of the thread.
