We're having a weird issue with a distant user of our website. I think the way it's set up is that Tomcat knows to check in a mysql db for the username and password in the basic authentication box that pops up in IE, and since that's been working fine for a while, I don't think it's the issue. We had the user clear his IE 6 cookies, temp internet files, and even go and turn off Auto-Complete under the Content tab. Usually when people go to the website and have their password saved, it still pops up the authentication box and they only have to choose OK, but in his case it doesn't even display that authentication box and just logs him straight into the website, so that he can't ever log in under a different username and password. Ever seen this before? Thanks!

Seems like more of a Tomcat than a JSP issue, so moving along to the Tomcat forum.
