Password Protection Glitch in Netscape

Postby TronChoir » Mon Mar 26, 2007 3:29 pm

I followed the online tutorial (brilliant feature BTW!) and placed some PDFs in a protected folder with links from an HTM page. Internet Explorer v6 works fine: It recognizes the contents of the folder as being protected and calls up a PW dialog box before you can open or download the content correctly. The password and User ID are set OK so everything's fine.
However, Netscape 7.2 ignores the protection and opens the PDFs without hesitation as soon as you click on the link. No dialog box, no nuthin' - acts like it just isn't there. Is there a work around? Anyone encounter this weirdness before?
Thanks, GW.

Just try after removing all the stored passwords on the Netscape browser.
By the way, have you tried with Mozilla Firefox ?
