User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510 MailNews doesn't seem to remember account passwords unless the password manager is enabled. This makes sense, EXCEPT that if you click the "remember this password" box you are not prompted to start the password manager. The only way I found to start the password manager is to visit a webpage with a password, enable the password manager, and then check email. At this point the remember password box functions as it should. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start a fresh profile 2. Open email and configure an email account 3. Check the mail and check the "remember this password box" 4. Restart mozilla and check mail Actual Results: The enter password box appears, despite me telling it to save it Expected Results: It should have saved the password and used that password to login. Not a real severe bug but it had me guessing for a while this morning. I configure email FIRST and didn't go to a web page and thus the password manager was never started. It took me a while to figure out why Mozilla kept prompting me for my password.
