The default HTTP authentication dialog does not look very good. Instead of working around this in Epiphany, let's make the default dialog nicer.

Suggested improvements from [1] are:

 * The dialog is far too wide, with too much space between the labels and the entry fields.
 * The entry fields are too wide.
 * The "OK" button should have a more meaningful label, like "Authenticate" or "Unlock".
 * It doesn't have a heading.
 * The first line reads awkwardly: it is in the wrong tense. Perhaps "Username and password required" would be better.
