I am using Firefox 1.0 (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0) with the calendar extention (2004121719-cal). I have it configured to access an .ics file on my ftp server so that I can read my calendar from home as well as at the office. I have enabled "Automatically publish your changes to remote calendar" for this specific calendar. Whenever I make an edit to the calendar I am prompted 2 times for my password. This continues for every edit even though I have not closed the calendaring program. It seems to me that Calendar should be able to remember my password for as long as the program is open and only prompt again if the program is exited and then relaunched.
The password prompt doesn't have a checkbox to remember the password? it should have...
The password dialog has a checkbox to remember the password, however, this does not prevent the dialog from popping up. All that does is auto fill the password for you and then the user has to hit OK to dismiss the dialog box. Thanks
This appears to be closely related to bug 117592 (Mozilla Trunk) and 223636 (Firefox).
I have been experiencing this same problem - but I'm using standalone Sunbird on a Windows XP platform. I've included the password and username to my Mozilla (v4.7.8) password manager to see if it reads from this, but it seems to make no difference. The "tick to remember log in details" box in Sunbird is checked, but simply doesn't seem to record the details.

I can confirm this report with sunbird: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a2pre)Gecko/20070115 Calendar/0.6a1 and lightning: 0.4a1 - build 2007011505 on Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 I do recall that after some time it did work like it supposed to, but I could be wrong.
WFM now with: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11pre) Gecko/20070305 Calendar/0.5pre Can others confirm?
Reporter, looks like this has been fixed in recent builds. If you can still reproduce the problem with a current nightly, please reopen the bug. Marking WFM.
