They get the page on the first, but the browser only shows it once the
authentication is cancelled (either by the browser limit of 3 attempts, or
by pressing cancel).

Don't deny the requests with a proxy_auth acl type. In most configurations
it is simply a matter of making sure the last acl on your http_access deny
line is not a proxy_auth acl. Note that this also affects deny_info as it
too looks at the last acl.
