Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150508094354

Steps to reproduce:

TB 31.6.0 Windows 7

Mail server set up hosting accounts with username in the format "user@example.com"

Delete previous TB profile to ensure starting from scratch.

Open TB, click to add new account.


Actual results:

TB appears to search for accounts with username only using the local part of the email address. That's fine because many servers have usernames like that.


Expected results:

TB should ALSO attempt to test username login with full email address as the username as this is also common in many virtual hosting environments.

Do you still see this with version 38?
