Description P Jones 2007-03-07 16:01:46 UTC
[pjones@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa firefox nss

Sometimes the password manager will insert remembered usernames and passwords
into a site's username and password fields, other times it won't. This did not
happen in firefox The behavior is intermittent, and I can't point to a
specific sequence of events that will make it happen.

Other item of note is that sometimes I can double click on the username field
and the remembered username will appear in a dropdown list, but selecting it
will not cause the password to appear.

And, I just discovered, if I save a new username/password combination, all of my
username/passwords will disappear from the password list. Restarting firefox
brings them back. For what it's worth, I've had this password list since about RH9.

updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

reporter's distribution.
