I use Firefox to develop my organization's CMS, which uses HTTP Basic Auth. This stopped working suddenly - no basic auth prompt is shown as of 16 Feb 2022. There's no error in the window or console, my server logs a 401 as expected but I've no way to log in. It works fine on other browsers.

Presumably, this is due to the fact that the CMS runs on HTTP, not HTTPS.

Is there anything I can do? We need to keep this running on port 8080...

Dev I am not, but are you currently using your distro version of Firefox? Try downloading another copy from Mozilla and see if you have the same issue.

@jonzn4SUSE, if you are telling me that this is not a new Firefox behavior, sure I can try that. I just assumed it was, albeit a bit heavy-handed...
