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 SecureFTP-Test.com).

Based on this Stackoverflow answer stackoverflow.com/questions/2485207/2934514#2934514 I have tried to use AutoLogin script from userscripts.org/scripts/show/750, 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. wiki.bistudio.com (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
    
i'm getting a security certificate not trusted when I visit that site. – Vervious Sep 29 '10 at 2:14

Some Chrome extensions that could help:

LastPass
Google Autologin
Auto Login

I did the following with Firefox and LastPass :

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

Now whenever I start Firefox, I'm immediately logged-into ftp.secureftp-test.com.

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 joelonsoftware.com/items/2008/09/11b.html). – Suma Sep 28 '10 at 15:02
    
I have tried LastPass now. Still I see no change with the login on the wiki.bistudio.com 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
