User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225 I had one newsgroup account.It worked. I added a second. At completion of this process (done using the Mozilla GUI, not a command-line hack) the new account was NOT listed. I quit and re-started Mozilla. No change. I tried to add another newsgroup account, of a different name, using the same details as the second one I added. At the Server Information page I get an new Alert window pop up containing text "A mail or newsgroup account with the same user name and server name already exists. Click Back and enter a different server name, or click Cancel." I confirm I am using a different "Your Name" and "Email address". It rejects the mail server name. If I enter a different server name, it completes normally, and the new account is visible in the menus. Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce Steps to Reproduce: 1. Successfully create a valid newsgroup account. 2. Try to create a second newsgroup account using the same username and email, but different newsgroup server. Actual Results: The second account appears to exist but be, to the GUI, invisible and hence unusable. Trying to create subsequent accounts with the same news server name fail; server name already exists. Expected Results: The 2nd newsgroup account should have been visible. Upon Mozilla restart, existance of this "phantom account" should have been detected and gracefully dealt with. I cannot setup a new newsgroup account (using the newsgroup server that is currently available to me).
Your mozilla is far too old to report bug against. Please, upgrade at least with mozilla 1.5 or 1.6b and try to see if your bug is still alive. Thanks.
No comment on this bug since more than 4 years. I'm tentatively RESOLVING it WORKSFORME. Anyone still sees it with a _recent_ build, please REOPEN.
