    Question Need my password prompt to go to 401 error quicker...

    Right now the password prompt will continue on and on without following my errordocument redirect. I need it to go to the redirect page after the third attempt.

    Also, the errordocument page is not in the pass protected directory, but the images on the page don't load. I need to fix this also.

    the site is on a godaddy.com linux server, if that makes a difference.

    I have just realised that this problem only occurs when using Firefox browser. It does only allow three chances to get a good authentication in Internet Explorer, then it goes to the errordocument instructed page, and that page loads properly in IExplorer.

    Is there a way for me to tweak it so that it works right in Firefox browser also?

    Not really, http authentication leaves alot of decisions in the hands of the browser. If you wish to use more complex authentication, you should probably use something database driven.

    Note that clicking cancel in FF should get the desired effect.
