Details

(Whiteboard: [passwords:master-password] [passwords:primary-password])

Affected versions

  • Firefox 66.0a1 (BuildId:20190116170105)
  • Firefox 65.0b11 (BuildId:20190114172331)
  • Firefox 64.0.2 (BuildId:20190108160530)
  • Firefox 60.4.0esr (BuildId:20181203164059)

Affected platforms

  • Windows 10 64bit.
  • macOS 10.14
  • Ubuntu 16.04 64bit.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Launch Firefox.
  2. Access the about:preferences#privacy page.
  3. Tick the “Use a master password” checkbox in order to create a new Master Password.
  4. Enter a password and click the “Ok” button from the “Change Master Password” panel.

Expected result

  • A notification is displayed, informing the user that a Master Password is successfully created.

Actual result

  • A notification is displayed, stating “Master Password successfully changed”. This can lead to some confusion since the user has no previous Master Password created.

Regression range

  • I don’t think that this is a regression.

Additional notes

  • It would be nice to change the notification message to something like: “Master Password successfully created” when a Master Password is created (not changed).
  • Additionally, it would be nice to rename the "Change Master Password" panel title into something like "Create Master Password" when a new Master Password is created.
