Opera: modal popup window for login

Hi experts,

since some months (or maybe a year) I have the strange problem that my
browser Opera¹ pops sometimes up a modal dialog window for logging with
username and password.
That means I open the login page, operas password manager fills out name
and PW but then a modal dialog window pops up with the same credentials and
blocks any operation until I click OK (or Cancel) there.

This happens _only_ in opera, not with other browsers, and _only_ for
twitter, not for other pages with logins.
Why?
Can I switch that off?

MfG
Gerald

Is it a cookies problem?
Because these kind of log-ins are often remembered via a cookie.

I have set Opera to delete Cookies at closing but I will try deleting them
manually.

No change.
