Re: Manual username/password (Error: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS)

They probably disabled this option to ask for username as a security

Perhaps you could add a button 'Username' in the Checkout dialog?
There is still some room next to the 'Omit externals'.

Thanks,
Erwin
