In my experience this is not related to the usage of a PAC script, but
which site is the first site you visit.

If the HTML page of the initial page is cached but not some other
objects like adverts, usage trackers etc then many browsers gets
confused and pops up manly login requests, caused by the browser running
several requests in parallell and seeing all of them being rejected
bythe proxy with auth requirement.

If the initial page you visit is not cached by the browser then this
problem do not arise. Same if the page is cached but the browser
revalidates it's cache before starting to render the page.
