From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417 BuildID: 2002041711 * The context is: You have an e-mail account like “firstname.lastname@example.org“ Your pop server is “pop.domain.com” In Mozilla your account name is “user” AND the “user name”, that the server asks you, is “email@example.com“ (yes, with the “@”) * When you click “get mail” it says: “Enter your password for firstname.lastname@example.org@pop.domain.com” It should say “Enter your password for email@example.com” * Other contexts: If your “user name” was “user;domain.com“ you would have “Enter your password for user;firstname.lastname@example.org” It should be very easy to fix. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Put this configuration or similar, don't write a password there, it has to ask you. 2. Click "Get Mail"
I have noticed this also.
Reporter - is this still a problem? If not, please close the bug!
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 It still works the way described in bug report because mozilla uses "<pop-user-name>@<pop-host-name>" in the mentioned dialog while <pop-user-name> is often a complete email address these days. Correct solution is "user <pop-user-name> at host <pop-host-name>" although this would look slightly confusing too (but, again, correct). It all lives in localMsgs.properties: ## @name POP3_ENTER_PASSWORD_PROMPT ## @loc None # LOCALIZATION NOTE(4016): Do not translate the word "%1$s@%2$s" below. # Place the word "%1$s@%2$s" where email account name should appear (i.e. email@example.com) 4017=Enter your password for %1$s@%2$s: ## @name POP3_PREVIOUSLY_ENTERED_PASSWORD_IS_INVALID_ETC ## @loc None # LOCALIZATION NOTE(4016): Do not translate the word "%s" below. It will receive the message returned by the server. # Do not translate "%.100s@%.100s". It will receive the email account name. 4018=Please enter a new password for user %.100s@%.100s:
