So I installed the most recent restful_authentication plugin from github and ran into a frustrating problem... on Internet Explorer 6 and 7 I received a security dialog box rather than seeing the login view. When I clicked logout I received the same dialog.
I came across some posts on the web that led me to remove the following line (73: authenticated_system.rb)
request_http_basic_authentication 'Web Password'
That worked for the login view, but logout still showed the dialog. So I removed the format block around it:
format.any do request_http_basic_authentication 'Web Password' end
Now everything is working!
However, I would like to understand what is happening here and WHY this worked. Anyone have any thoughts?
