User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Build Identifier: version 0.6 (20040502) When querying LDAP servers that allow anonymous bind, password dialog box continues to appear. Leaving the password empty allows the query to succed, but the next time you compose a message, password dialog reappers. Checking "remember password" does not save the empty password. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Configure a connection to an LDAP address book that allows anonymous (empty password) access. Open a compose window and start typing a name. Password dialog appears. Check "Use Password Manager to remember this password" Click OK to submit an empty password. Lookup succeds. Close Compose window. Open a new Compose window and start typing a name. Actual Results: A password dialog box appears. It seems that it is not able to save the fact that the LDAP server doesn't need a password. Expected Results: Lookup succeds without prompting for a password. I first reported this under Mozilla 1.6 MailNews, but I discovered that Thunderbird has the same bug and I wasn't sure if anyone is tracking/handling MailNews bugs anymore.
can we dupe this against hte mozilla bug then? WE don't keep thunderbird specific dupes of bugs.
The corresponding bug against Mozilla 1.6 is: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=242772
