Dialog box appears as expected, but logging in causes both mozilla and firebird
to crash.  Both worked fine with the mail exhange (MS 2000 exhange server)
before installing the latest versions.  Prior versions were removed from my
computer before installing, and a new profile was created for each.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to
2.login dialog box pops up enter key

Actual Results:  
"This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down."

Expected Results:  
connect to the exchange server and display folders and email.

If it happens in Mozilla, then please don't file it as a Firebird bug.

Looks like bug 212336.

Can you mention via attachment 131139 [details] (dumpver.exe) the version of secur32.dll
you have on your machine ?

hmm... looks like the patch for bug 212336 isn't enough.  perhaps the older
versions of SECUR32.DLL are buggy in other ways... *sigh* :-/

bugs like this make me want to throw away the whole SSPI thing and go with a
custom NTLM implementation for all platforms.

i think the correct solution to this bug is to not use SECUR32.DLL for NTLM when
we detect that its version is too old.  when we get a cross-platform NTLM
implementation, we can just use that instead.  hmm.. maybe we'd want to always
use that! ;)  ... who likes having to chase down crashes in MS's code?  -- not me!

hmm... perhaps SECUR32.DLL doesn't like an empty username.  we can easily
protect against that.

can anyone reproduce this crash using a variant of WinNT?
I ran the dumpver.exe program provide in the attachment.  The program output the
following version information:  I then looked for the file
(SECUR32.DLL) and found it in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM (the only copy/version).  I
right-clicked on the icon and selected "Properties."  I clicked the "Version"
tab, and it states the version is 4.10.1998.  I presume, for some reason, the
Windows Properties dialog omits the "0".

FYI, I right-clicked on "My Computer" and under "System:" it says is:

 Microsoft Windows 98

BTW, I have installed most of the latest patches from Microsoft (Windows 98
Update site).  The only ones I have not applied are those for Internet Explorer
6 since I have IE 5.5. Also, I can successfully log-in to using IE 5.5, which, I presume, uses SECUR32.DLL,
also. Hope this helps.

this bug is fixed now that the patch for bug 224653 has been checked in.  in
fact, we no longer load SECUR32.DLL :-)

I have been using Mozilla 1.6b for a few weeks now, and it doesn't crash
anymore!  However, I have noticed one thing that might be deemed worthy of

When the Infotropolis log-in dialog appears, the null string ("") is still
displayed in the message:

"Enter username and password for "" at"

If I click the cancel button, the log-in dialog reappears, but this time, the
string has a value:

"Enter username and password for "infotropolis" at"
Crash Signature: [@SECUR32.DLL]
