Accessing Haikuware screws WebPositive
Greetings Haiku Forum:
Lately I have been in need of software for Haiku. What better place to look but Haikuware....well guess again, because everytime I try to go to www.haikuware.com it asks for a username and password. Of course I do not know them, so I just quit the dialog box, and voila I'm screwed. The browser becomes unresponsive, and I am unable to open it after closing the non-responsive browser. I try to kill the application, but Terminal asks for a job id and I do not know the job id. Then, I shut down haiku, and I have to kill WebPositive before it shuts down. luckily the dialog box that appears upon shutdown gives me the option to kill the application, and I do so...its really annoying.
Under the list of issues in the release, there is a brief article describing the problem:
#7793 WebPositive crash if authentication dialog is cancelled
but, they killed this ticket, and I cannot find any solutions to the problem. its very frustrating.
