    Authentication Required?

    Starting today, I keep getting popups with title "Authentication Required" and content:
    A user name and password are being requested by http://www.transformerforums.com. The site says: "Authorization Required"
    Any ideas?

    Are you using a web browser or Tapatalk?

    Maybe try logging out and logging back in and see if that helps.

    This is when using a web browser (Firefox) on a Windows PC. I tried logging out and logging in, with no difference. Interestingly the popups don't occur if I browse the site while logged out, only when logged in. I see them on pages like http://www.transformerforums.com/for...s-suggestions/ and http://www.transformerforums.com/for...ral-discussion but not on individual threads, nor on pages like http://www.transformerforums.com/for...tegra-4-forum/.

    I see the same thing on both my tablet, and my windows box - both using Chrome. I'll log out on BOTH, then try coming back again...

    I'm getting it too. I am checking with one of our web gurus. It should not be popping up for y'all.

    I'm getting it as well on the main forums pages, but not in the individual threads. I'm using Windows 8.1 with Chrome desktop browser. I've been hitting escape twice to get rid of it, as entering my credentials doesn't seem to be doing anything. Hopefully this site hasn't been hijacked.

    It's not. Someone is looking into it.
