Bitwarden will not complete login details

Hi all,

Bitwarden is not able to complete the login details at this site:

I get this error message:

Tried with Brave, Chrome and FF with the same result.

Any ideas appreciated.


Hey @gregeeh, have you tried using linked custom fields to solve the issue? You can also report browser auto-fill failures here for the team to look into, the Github issue contains a form to submit the data.

Just gave it a try and I cannot even get the Bitwarden Menu to get the Custom Field Name. Nor can I display Page Source.

Hey @gregeeh - what is the URL of the site? I can’t make it out on the screen cap you posted.

And why can’t you display the page source???

Don’t get the option after I right click.

That’s because the site appears to be protected with an .htaccess password or something similar that prompts you to authenticate with a username and password BEFORE it loads the website. I don’t think any password manager can autofill that, unfortunately. Your only option is to copy and paste.

I’m not sure, but it does look like a basic auth prompt. Here’s a link to the help page detailing the handling of basic auth prompts. Hope that helps.


I think you’re correct, here’s .htaccess:

### extra safety
<FilesMatch "\.(htaccess|htpasswd)$">
 order allow,deny
 deny from all

### authenticate user
AuthUserFile /home/gregeeh/www/rutorrent/.htpasswd
AuthName "Private zone"
AuthType Basic
require valid-user

Your link helped greatly, thank you.
