Small bug...

In the url I gave you, I have an account. Mozilla is storing the subject for my
posts as well as the password and username. So when I enter a new subject in, it
asks if I want to create a new identity.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an account for the forum(works on all the forums).
2. Post a message and choose a subject.
3. Post a new message 
4. Mozilla will automatically fill in the User/Password/Subject.
5. Choose a new subject
6. Mozilla will ask you if you want to save the new User/Password/Subject.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla stores subject as well as password and account. Asks everytime if I want
to save new identity.

Expected Results:  
I don't think Mozilla should store subject...

Can you reproduce that with Mozilla or only with Firebird ?
Comment 2 User image James 2003-10-10 19:46:46 PDT
Don't have normal Mozilla... only Firebird.
Comment 3 User image Bill Mason 2003-10-10 19:49:06 PDT
This may be the Firebird form autocomplete bug 199819.  The partial fixes for
that bug postdate the 0.6.1 milestone.

If you don't have normal Mozilla to test with, please file UI-related bugs on
the right product.

I can confirm that a problem used to exist.  It happened to me on the Talkback
on MozillaZine.  But a lot of things have changed since then, so this may not
still be a bug.

Password manager has been changed since 0.6.1. Could you try this with a newer
build and a new profile? (one of the 0.7 release candidates or 0.7 once it's out)

Moving to the new password manager component and reassigning.
