For the sake of security, our security team put our AEM 6.1 stage site under htaccess authentication protection.

But, after entered the correct credentials the stage site is redirecting to url like this "http://stage.sample.com/content/geometrixx/en/toolbar/account/login.html?resource=%2Fcontent%2Fufs%2...", and given below error.

This redirected url looks like related to AEM. How can I avoid the url redirecting and get htaccess the authentication pass? Thanks.

Try un-setting the basic authentication before sending the request to AEM 

Enable some configuration like below in virtual-host

<Location />
## unsets authorization header when sending request to AEM
RequestHeader unset Authorization
Deny from all
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf.d/htaccess/uat_dispatcher.htaccess
AuthName "Authentication Required"
AuthType Basic
Satisfy Any
require valid-user
</Location>

@HuodongYuan thank you for posting in Communities. Based on your post, you are trying to implement htaccess authentication in stage publisher.. so what is the redirect url you have configured in htacess? Is it the same URL user hit or some standard URL? Also are you able to hit same page via Publisher ip or domain?
