           Summary: [GTK] HTTP authentication is not implemented for
    Classification: Unclassified

When a normal load is converted to a download, the HTTP authentication happens before the load is converted, and the download startes already authenticated. However, downloads started by DownloadManager::startDownload use the DownloadClient API to do the authentication. We don't implement didReceiveAuthenticationChallenge() in our download client, what makes the load to be cancelled and then fail silently. We should probably add API to handle downloads authentication, but we can also forward the authentication to the web view for downloads havign a web view associated. That would cover most of the cases, like downloading from the context menu.
