User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; StumbleUpon.com 1.818; Maxthon; SV1; Free Download Manager) Build Identifier: While browsing a newsserver that doesn't support multiple connections, sometimes more than one can accidently occur. After clicking OK in the error box that is displayed, I try to go to another newsgroup in the same server (that has new messages). It then asks me for the username and password again (even though I checked the "Use Password Manager to remember this value." checkbox). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log-on to a news server that doesn't support multiple connections. 2. Access a newsgroup that is part of the news server. 3. Click on another newsgroup (in the same news server.) 4. After the error message, click on another newsgroup. Actual Results: It gives an error message about how there were too many connections. When you try to go to another newsgroup in it, Thunderbird asks you your username and password. Expected Results: Give the error message and after clicking OK, then go to another newsgroup (without the username and password being requested).
Btw, I'm using Thunderbird v0.7+ (20040804).
