User-Agent: Netscape Build Identifier: Mozilla 1.5b Annoying and not secure: NewsMail of Mozilla 1.5b asks for master password everytime it opens. Yet the mail window is already open for yours to view all the emails that have been received. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Edit Preference in Newsmail and enable master password 2. Close Mozilla, restart Mozilla or reboot PC and start Mozilla. Start NewsMail 3. NewsMail opens, then pops up a window asking for master password 4. You must enter master password everytime Newmail starts. Actual Results: NewsMail functions as usual. The security problem is that it opens all the email accounts for all to see before the pop-up master password request window. Expected Results: Suggestion: leave master password to protect encrypted passwords only. Remove annoyance of requesting master password everytime Newmail opens.

Could you please check whether this problem still persists with a current nightly build? There was a fix for bug #247417 checked in recently, and it fixed a similar behavior I was experiencing under Linux. Unless I hear differently from you, I'll assume that this has been fixed by the checkin for bug #247417 and mark this as WORKSFORME.
Since there was no reaction from either the reporter or the author of comment #1, I assume that this has been fixed by the checkin for bug #247417 . Please reopen if you can reproduce the bug with a current nightly. Marking WORKSFORME
