    I have configured an Apache 2 virtualhost to be accessible only with the basic authentication.

    <Directory /path>
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "You need to be connected"
    AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache2/conf/passfile
    Require user specifieduser

    This settings work great, but I have a problem that occur with some user.
    When they access a page, the browser asks to identify multiple times to show the page, around 6-7.
    My client runs on Ubuntu jaunty width firefox 3 and I don't have this problem.
    Some windows users have it and others not.
    It appear that most Mac OS X users have this problem, Safari and Firefox.

    Do you know a known issue and maybe a solution ?
