Why doesn't any browser on a specific Mac show the Basic Authentication login for a specific site?

Why doesn't any browser on a specific Mac show the Basic Authentication login for a specific site?

I've been helping my neighbor try to resolve an issue which recently cropped up on his new Apple iMac. He can browse the internet just fine, but when he tries to visit a particular site (http://mbeweb.mbe.com), the browser just reports 'Loading' until it gives up and times out.

Try spoofing another browser in Safari 4. Enable the Develop menu in Preferences if you can't see it on screen, then select UserAgent from the Develop Menu and try one of the Internet Explorer options (or any others until you get one that works).
