Description

This will require restoring the connection to the handler that is saved in the NestedScrollWebView.

It appears that the app no longer crashes, but it does wait for a long time (perhaps about a minute) before displaying the dialog if a new website uses HTTP authentication after a restart when a prior dialog is open. The restart also clears the previous dialog from the screen.

This appears to be WebView behavior that I don't have access to modify. Basically, when the HTTP authentication dialog is dismissed without valid credentials, WebView waits for a timeout before displaying it again.

Actually, it turns out that I can cancel the handler when the app is restarted. The result is that the webpage visible before the authentication dialog was displayed is loaded on restart, but navigating to the URL that triggers the HTTP authentication dialog will immediately cause it to display, removing the annoying timeout problem.
