I am going to guess that you are using Windows, and this is a popup by Windows itself.
Ipsilon is trying to perform GSSAPI (Kerberos) authentication for automatic sign-in,
but where Linux just says "I don't have a ticket", Windows will prompt you
password to get a ticket itself.
However, Windows does not support the protocols that are needed to get a ticket for
the Fedora Project kerberos realm, meaning that it has no way at all to actually
correctly process your ticket.
Only after Windows attempted this and says "I don't have a ticket", does
get the option of showing up and prompting you for your password.

If it's a Windows (or browser) pop-up, do not enter your Fedora password there, it
This sounds like a bug we have seen in the past where fas sends a 503 or
something and ipsilon only stores partial info in cookies in your
browser and then thinks it has all the info on retries.
Not in this case.
* Try clearing any *.fedoraproject.org cookies in your browser
* Try logging in in a 'private' window, does that work?
