I am not sure if this is the right forum, but here goes:

I have set up password protection for a folder on my website using .htaccess and .htpasswd.

This works as it should for IE, Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome; that is anyone trying to access the folder is prompted for a user name and password.

However, in Safari, the user just sails through to the 'protected' folder, apparently ignoring the protection.

As you can imagine, this is rather worrying. Has anyone got any ideas?
