Is there any addon or setting how to avoid a "login popup" in the Google chrome? There is an addon which can fill (and sumbit) the login data inside the web page, but I cannot find anything which would automatically confirm the popup dialogue used for https site logins.

I have used such addon for Firefox, called AutoAuth, but no luck in Chrome so far.

An example of a site displaying a login popup: Secure FTP Test Server, courtesy of Chilkat Software, Inc.. To enter the site use the username test and password test (see Welcome to

Based on this Stackoverflow answer I have tried to use AutoLogin script from, but either it is not working, or I did not install it properly. – Suma Sep 23 '10 at 9:57
It seems that script does exactly the same as the addons I have tried before, i.e. login within the page, not the https dialogue based login. – Suma Sep 23 '10 at 10:11
what has https got to do with dialog boxes? What webpages throw a popup to login? – barlop Sep 27 '10 at 19:20
You can try accessing e.g. (I know you cannot access it, as you do not have account there, but you should still get the https login dialog). – Suma Sep 28 '10 at 11:53

Some Chrome extensions that could help:

Google Autologin
Auto Login

I did the following with Firefox and LastPass :

  1. Login to, letting LastPass remember the password
  2. Went into the LastPass Vault and clicked Edit of
  3. Put a check-mark in Auto Login and OK
  4. Set as my home page

Now whenever I start Firefox, I'm immediately logged-into

Unfortunatelly all of them see to do exactly the thing I am not interested about, i.e. login using web form. None of them handles https login dialog. – Suma Sep 28 '10 at 11:52
@Suma: LastPass does handle https and login dialog - it's a very complete and free product. Did you under-vote? – harrymc Sep 28 '10 at 12:07
I admit I did not try LastPass - it does too much for me. I am not looking for a password manager nor a password online storage, I already have a solution for both of this which I am unwilling to change (basically what is described in – Suma Sep 28 '10 at 15:02
I have tried LastPass now. Still I see no change with the login on the site. The login dialog is shown and I have to confirm it. – Suma Sep 28 '10 at 15:10
LastPass is supposed to give AFTER the login is finished successfully a bar on top of the page with options. Do you get it? – harrymc Sep 28 '10 at 15:18
