Description

19 years ago
occurred using 2000011308 comm bits for both winNT and linux (not yet tested on
mac).

0. make sure that autofill is turned on in Prefs > Advanced.

1. go to a
form
where you enter a username and passwd, eg,
http://slip/projects/marvin/wallet/login.html
2. enter mozilla for username,
nscp for passwd. when prompted re: saving, click
the No button.
3. go to Tasks >
My Wallet > Display Signons. enter db key if prompted (i had
mine set to
nothing, for simplicity).
4. click the Signons Not Saved tab.

result: username
mozilla, site slip are not displayed (there's nothing there).
even if i quit
seamonkey and bring up Display Signons, the Signons Not Saved tab
is empty.

expected: unsaved username & site should be listed.

It's always good to get a fresh pair of eyes looking at the technology because
then we get to see where a newcomer would be confused.  The "signons not saved"
display is for sites for which the signons are never saved.  Its the ones for
which you press the "never" button when you get the do-you-want-to-save prompt.
When you press the "no" button, you are saying that you don't want to save it
that one time but you will be saving it for this site in the future.

So I guess the wording on the viewer is bad.  Perhaps is should say "never"
instead of "not" in two places -- i.e.,

   Signons never saved
   Mozilla will never save login information for the following sites

Actually there are two other minor problems related to this viewer as well.

1. We shouldn't mention the name "mozilla" because this will be in the
netscape-branded product as well.  Perhaps it should say "Browser will never
save login information for the following sites."

2. The viewer lists a site and a username.  But the username is irrelevant -- no
signons will be saved for that site regardless of the username.  So the username
field should be removed from this tab of the viewer.

Reassigning to goodger to fix the three issues mentioned above ("not" to "never"
in two places, and the two minor points enumerated).
