Luckily, macOS has a way to load this WiFi Join window inside an actual browser. The URL works just fine in Safari, so point your browser to:

It’s now possible to fill the form and actually see the JavaScript popup (as long as the browser settings don’t explicitly prevent it).

ps. I love that URL
