German: Password manager does not save passwords
Steps how to reproduce with German SeaMonkey 2.38 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0 Build 20150923195647 (Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit: 1. Launch Browser 2. Menu 'Tools → Password Manager → into find string pane type a domain for what you know it's password and for what you stored a password 3. TAB "Passwords" » Domain with stored password is shown 4. [Delete] that domain 5. go to website for what you deleted password and try to login by typing your user name into user name input pane » Autofill might complete user name 6. Type password into password input line → <enter> » Login will be successful Expected: "Save Password?" message appears Actual: nothing happens, no message, password can not be stored I found this problem during my tests for "Bug 1208971 After Update from 2.35: German Version Password-Manager does not populate password-fields", see <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1208971#c10> Additional information: a) only native German Language SeaMonkey affected, en-US with German Language pack works fine b) other Languages not yet tested. c) also new password in newly created user profile does not work c) due to comments at de.comm.software.mozilla.nightly-builds "[SM Aurora] Passwort speichern geht nicht" the problem might already be in Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 SeaMonkey/2.36a2 Build identifier: 20150504013001
I can confirm this upgrading frpom 2.33.1 to 2.35 to 2.38 Windows x86 It also doens't work in my 2.39 beta: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 SeaMonkey/2.39 I see an error in the grman version wich I do not get in the us version: >> Zeitstempel: 21.10.2015 08:57:11 >> Fehler: NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED: Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) >> [nsIPrefBranch.getCharPref] >> Quelldatei: resource://gre/components/nsSuiteGlue.js >> Zeile: 953 Didin't check it if this is the cause. The good news is that it stops working even in the us version with 2.39:) >> Timestamp: 21.10.2015 09:07:53 >> Error: NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Couldn't decrypt string >> Source File: resource://gre/components/crypto-SDR.js >> Line: 146 Need to check this over the weekend and open a new bug if necessary FRG
With the patch in Bug 1208971 applied I can no longer reproduce this. The NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED goes away when setting the spellchecker preference. The decrypt failure was a corrupt profile I think (too much testing with different versions). I think this bug is a duplicate of Bug 1208971 and not limited to Seamonkey 2.38 >> User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 SeaMonkey/2.39 >> Build-Identifikator: 20151024102121
(In reply to Frank-Rainer Grahl from comment #3) At least I can say that workaround for Bug 1208971 <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1208971#user_story_comment> also works here, these bugs are _very_ related. DUP until someone proves the opposite.
