Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter a bug 2. Login: un-check the "restrict this session.." box 3. Later, enter another bug, requiring another Login Actual Results: The "Restrict this session to this IP address:" box is checked Expected Results: The box should be un-checked I assume that users with a fixed IP will want the box to stay checked, while the other users will want the box to always be un-checked. Remembering the last status will achieve this easily.
If it's asking you to log in again, then you probably have cookies disabled. And the only way we could remember such a thing without the user being logged in already would be to set a cookie.

The cookies are enabled from day 1. "Enable cookies", "Accept cookies normally". The login form auto-completes my eMail and the password. I would suggest remembering the check-box status in the same place.
The login form auto-completing is a function of your browser, not of Bugzilla. Is this on bugzilla.mozilla.org, or on some other Bugzilla where you're having to log in again all the time?
I get the Login at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi . It appears once between startup and shutdown of the PC, not all the time. Since it's Firefox saving the 2 fields, should my wish be a Firefox enhancement bug instead of Bugzilla?
Another thing: I got the Login form after clicking "Commit" for comment #4.
Ah, but it's only once in a while, and not every time you change something, right? If you're on a dynamic IP address, then getting a login screen each time you first visit Bugzilla after logging into your ISP is normal. Setting a cookie with your last value for restrict would work then.

Oops.. "accept my suggestion". Sorry.
yeah, makes sense to set a cookie for that.
I know that this a old "bug" here, but I am experiencing the same situation as the caller. Is there a cookie to solve this problem, or has there been no change until now? I would agree that such a cookie is a nice feature, but for me it would be sufficient if the users could set this value in their options. Or is there a possibility to uncheck this box by default for every user? I couldn't find one in the administration part of the bugzilla-page.
:glob- is this still a worthwhile bug to fix? If so, and if this makes a good first bug, can you link to the code, how to reproduce this problem, and what an ideal fix looks like? Also please assign a mentor for this bug.
removing the [good first bug] tag as we should have a mentor with them. Also where is the codebase for this bug?
Whiteboard: [good first bug][lang=perl] → [lang=perl]

Seriously, it doesn't make sense to mention where the codebase is located in each bug. Contributors should visit http://www.bugzilla.org/contribute/ first.
