Just talking out loud;
T hat's strange. Are you sure the login box is coming from that site or is
it possibly something at your end? I can sort of picture it being either the
Cards & Logins box a la FF, or perhaps the ISP is intermittantly
security-checking for passwords as sometimes happens. There are a few
possibilities, another being a slight mis-spelling of the URL that goes to a
place where sign-in is required.
Newsgroups are great places to get assistance.
But always verify important information with
other sources to be certain you have a clear
understanding of it and that it is accurate.
