Result: You are inundated with an "endless" (50 in this case) supply of modal dialogs asking you for credentials. Regardless of whether you enter the correct credentials (netsession/password) or hit enter, the modal dialogs just keep on coming.
Suggested fix: Chrome and Firefox only prompt me once. If I enter credentials or hit cancel, they use that for all subsequent requests to that HTTP Basic Auth realm.
In addition, it would be nice if the dialog wasn't modal, so it can't block the whole app.
Background: Every day I receive a stats email that includes around 100 tiny sparkline-style graphs. These graph images are served off of our stats server, which authenticates users via HTTP Basic Authentication (meaning that in order to get the
image, the client has to send a username/password in the HTTP headers). When I view this email (in IE or the Windows Mail app), it brings up a modal dialog to prompt me for the username and password for every single image in the email (all 100). There's
no way to cancel or abort.
In the Mail app this is made even worse because it apparently tries to pre-load emails in the background, so I get stuck in this "endless" modal dialog cycle without even clicking on the email in question. So my entire Mail app is currently unusable.

I would suggest you to reset Internet Explorer 11 Preview and check if it helps.
a)Close all Internet Explorer and Explorer windows that are currently open.
b)Reopen Internet Explorer for the
desktop. Changing your settings will affect both Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer for the desktop.
c)Tap or click the
Toolsbutton, and then tap or click Internet options.
d)Tap or Click the
Advanced tab, and then tap or click Reset.
Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, tap or click
f)When Internet Explorer finishes applying default settings, tap or click
Close, and then tap or click OK. You'll need to restart your PC for these changes to take effect.
Note: Please note that running Reset Internet Explorer Settings will reset all user-defined settings including those set by installed extensions, toolbars and other add-ons to IE Defaults. This
includes all Security, Privacy and Zone settings. Also this will clear browsing history, delete all temporary Internet Files, cookies, form data and especially all stored passwords.
If the issue persists, I would suggest you to post the query in TechNet forum for further assistance.
