    Hi Gary,

    Ok, this is something that can happen on Macs using Safari. You see that pop-up because Safari is set to subscribe to the RSS feed. Another user let us know that a recent upgrade to Safari enables the username and password option in a subscription. This is the option that is causing you to see the pop-up. We provide you with URLs for the RSS feeds on your wiki on the Recent Changes page using the Notify Me tab that do not need usernames and passwords. Can you find an area in Safari to check your RSS subscriptions? If you can you should try setting the subscription to not use a username and password or delete the current subscription and create a new one using the RSS URLs mentioned above.
