When running Web Agent, when user accesses a site protected with
Windows Authentication Scheme, if the browser is used in Private Mode
(Incognito), then the browser receives a popup.




At first glance, this is a browser issue, and depending the browser
version, there are parameters to activate to have Windows
Authentication working on Firefox (1), Chrome (2) and Edge (3).
