    Simon, I'm probably totally off base here, but the only thing I can see in your CSS code that makes me wonder are the following lines:

    * Creates the general link style for the site. This is not the main navigation.  *
    a:link {
    color: #666666;
    font-weight: bold;
    list-style-image: url('ftp://ftp.mtom.biz/mtom.biz/htdocs/bullet.png');
    }

    What this looks like to me is what a link should look like before it's visited, and I'm wondering why "ftp"? Probably has nothing to do with things, but . . . could you explain it to me?

  • No clue and withut seeing your site/page there is no way for anyone to know/help. Post a link to your page on the net and maybe someone can help you.

    After some consideration, and given the immense amount of information provided, I m certain that you have reverse-mounted the trans-axle and probably distorted the bimblehousing. This forces Chrome into frammisnatch mode, which, of course, requires authentication.

  • And the possibility exists of a possible virus. One that is asking for your upload password. You need to fix that ASAP.

  • Is it all users or just you when your using Chrome? Maybe the other browsers have cookies set that do the authentication and in Chrome you have cookies disabled or you have not saved the password in it's cache.

  • Otherwise, all that can be offered, as may be readily observed from some of the preceding responses, are wild-ass guesses based on insufficient information. Some are willing to play that game. Most are not.

    So far we have two offering guesses and three abstaining from guessing. At what ratio does a majority become most? And, how many opinions are required to have a statistically valid sample to determine "most"? Just asking.

  • Well, you see, I thought my first reply counted as a guess, too. I mean, even if he did mismount the trans-axle, I really had no way of knowing for sure if he had thrown Chrome into frammisnatch mode or not...

    Yup, I see what you mean. Also, for what it's worth, when I click "Cancel" I can see the site perfectly well. However, when I click on a link, I get the request for Name and Password again, although clicking cancel lets me see that page. It's a workaround; however, I wouldn't depend on my potential clients clicking on the 'cancel' button, nor would I depend on them clicking it a second time when it shows up.

    The above is an observation only, since I'm still a rank beginner who's learning enough to be dangerous. A very good reason why I'm going to take a look at your code and see what I can see, not that it will help you in the least. It's just a part of my learning process and I do stumble upon good stuff once-in-awhile.

  • Nancy, it looks like you have found the source of the problem.  There should never be an FTP link for an image reference in a CSS file.  (That's not what the link should look like "before it's visited" - it's simply wrong.  There should be no reference to FTP there.)

    Perhaps other browsers are ignoring the "ftp", but Chrome thinks it's being asked to download it via FTP.

    If you cancel the Chrome ftp login request message on a page that uses those bullets, e.g, http://mtom.biz/page5.html you'll see they are not there, while in IE8, for example, they are.

  • Nice catch, Nancy. I had started looking through the source code when I saw your second post. It was fairly certain to be something along those lines, given the error message:

    Authentication Required
    The server ftp.mtom.biz:21 requires a username and password.

    That indicates an FTP request somewhere in the mix. If I didn't find it in the source I had considered using Fiddler to check the request stream, but you saved me the trouble.  ;-)

    Yet another illustration of why it is important to post a link to the actual page(s)...

    cheers,
    scott
