Handle credentials requests from HTTP Basic Auths separately #2542
Handle credentials requests from HTTP Basic Auths.
Type of change
Description and Context
KeePassXC will detect credential retrieval requests sent from HTTP Basic Auth dialogs. Requests from those dialogs will trigger permission popup every time even if the same URL has been previously denied.
Adds a global setting that can ignore asking HTTP Basic Auth credential permissions.

Tested manually in a local server with a page that has both HTTP Basic Auth and a basic username & password inputs.

I don't see a reason to have a separate approval for HTTP auths. My opinion is that HTTP auths should trigger the same approval as before, except it triggers even if approvals are disabled.
