The Mac computer continually [every power-up, reboot, or when the program is ran] asks for permission for an application to access a keychain.
The password is flagged to prompt every-time an application requests it.
Use this solution only if you are familiar with both the application or process which is asking, and the password it is requesting; as this will grant permanent permission.
(This is assuming the “Always Allow” option was tried previously.)
5.) Click the little plus sign in the lower left corner to “always allow access” to the password.
6.) Locate the application, [or process] or search for it and click “Add”.

The [secure] web page times-out with an "error 7" or "server not responding" when attempting to access Xfinity / Comcast website email (webmail) or some secure web sites - While using an Arris "Dory" cable-modem gateway model TG862G.
Bad Arris "Dory" Cable-modem Gateway Firmware. (Model TG862G - as indicated on the lower front panel).
1.) Reset the gateway*
2.) Replace the device.
*At this time, no firmware update is available; resetting will not correct the problem.
RESETTING THE DEVICE MAY CHANGE YOUR SSID (NETWORK NAME) AND/OR YOUR WIRELESS NETWORK PASSWORD.
To reset, you'll need to press the recessed button inside the back panel and hold it in for 30 seconds. The factory settings will be restored.
Note the factory SSID (network name) and password are on the sticker on the bottom of the device.
Verifying the firmware can be accomplished by entering 10.0.0.1 as a URL into your browser, using admin and password to access the Dory when prompted, then clicking Connection followed by Xfinity Network from the left hand margin; and scrolling down to Cable Modem.
Note: The SMC "Dory" is NOT experiencing this issue.
