Description

16 years ago
Problem: When you are presented with a dialog (at least in the mail/news
component) to use a certificate to authenticate to a (mail) server, pressing ESC
key selects the default certificate as if I had pressed ENTER key.  Normally
this wouldn't be a problem except that it kills my IMAP server process when the
cert is presented (iPlanet issue).

Expected behavior: Dialog should behave as if I pressed cancel.

Reproduceable: Always

See also bug 32023 for another bug complaining about the cancel button in client
auth dialog.

But I would have expected that using cancel in this dialog continues the
connection, without giving out a certificate to the server.

Kaie, is bug 345067 relevant?  And is this OS=ALL?

see also bug 380862. Maybe also bug 148678, but not sure as problem may be gone and I don't use that capability

Recent versions of Seamonkey and Firefox both behave normally.

Now I would love to have the option to NOT use my digital certificates for authentication (so I don't get the dialog box in the first place), but that is for a feature enhancement, not here.
