It seems it tried to request the dreaded favicon.ico and it did seem to 
request if from the document root of course. I did a rewrite rule to point 
the favicon.ico to the subdirectory and it did the trick and Firefox no 
longer prompts password. Thanks for your help. Next time I check the logs 
more carefully.
