I just tried with my m0n0 box and using a URL with the syntax:
http(s)://<username>:<password>@x.x.x.x/cgi/dump.php seems to work fine
with both HTTP and HTTPS in Firefox.

However (I assume for anti-phishing reasons) this technique doesn't
work in IE and both Opera and Firefox pops up a dialog box starting
that You are about to login into web site "x.x.x.x" with username
"<username>" rather than taking you directly to the page which might
cause problems if you're looking to automate the process using one of
those browsers.
(Win32 v1.8.2 WGET seems to work perfectly though)
