From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020804 BuildID: 2002080404 Very recently, Earthlink has mandated that their NNTP server use <username>@<domain> format for the login name when logging into their news servers. Password manager does not retain the @<domain> portion of this as it is capable of doing for mail accounts. The URL link given shows both my mail account and news account, with the news account not showing the proper login name. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Get an account with Earthlink or any ISP that requires the above username format for their News servers. 2. Enter the username and password for the news server when prompted. 3. Check password manager to see how it is stored Actual Results: As you can see from the following link; http://home.earthlink.net/~bhs2/ngbintmp/password_manager.png the usernames for the server and each newsgroup are not retaining the @<domain> portion of my login. Expected Results: Save the login name as <username>@<domain> I -have- tried adding the following line to user.js: user_pref("news.allow_at_sign_in_user_name", true); and it does appear in about:config as set to true, but it does not have the effect as its mail counterpart does.
