- If you are encountering issues within a browser other than Firefox, you may attempt to save the Site entry using LastPass for Firefox, which offers the best basic authentication support. After that, you may then attempt to use that Site entry within the other browser.

- Basic authentication for Mac OS X requires that you enable access for assistive devices (make sure you 'unlock' the lock to make changes in your Mac preferences):
- In OS X 10.7 or less by going to Apple > System Preferences > Universal Access and checking "Enable access for assistive devices".
- In OS X 10.8 by going to Apple > System Preferences > Accessibility > and check "Enable access for assistive devices"
In OS X 10.9 + by going to Apple > System Preferences > Security & Privacy and making sure any of the following that appear are checked under "Allow the apps below to control your computer":
- Google Chrome
- Google Chrome Canary
You may also need to manually add the file /Library/Google/Chrome/
NativeMessagingHosts/ nplastpass.app/Contents/MacOS/ nplastpass to the assistive devices list.
