#9098: Improvement of the title of the dialog that asks for username & password
    Reporter:  gnotaras  |      Owner:
        Type:  defect    |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal    |  Milestone:
   Component:  core      |    Version:  4.7.3
    Severity:  normal    |   Keywords:
Architecture:            |   Platform:
 The dialog that pops up when making a connection and asks for the username
 and password (in case they have not been saved) has a title named "Login".
 While this is not an issue for many users, it is not very convenient for
 those who use the "Auto-Type" feature of several password managers, like
 it happens with KeePass or KeePassX and several others. The "Auto-Type"
 feature can identify the relevant password entry by the title of the
 window that has the focus (of course the title has already been stored in
 the entry's settings within the password manager). That dialog having the
 generic title "Login" is not very helpful in such cases and an extra step
 is required by the user; that of the selection of the proper entry in the
 password manager.

 By making the dialog's title a little more descriptive containing server
 specific information, it would resolve this little problem very easily.

 Enter a username and password for {hostname.example.com}

 Enter a password for {username at hostname.example.com}  <-- In case the
 username has been saved.

 Login at {hostname.example.com}

 Thanks in advance.
