From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; N; Linux 2.2.14 ppc; en-US; m14) BuildID: 2000030215 When the password manager asks for your master password it puts up a dialogue box. The cursor in the text box blinks but when you type it doesn't accept text and you have to click in it to make it accept text. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: (This is assuming you use the password manager to log you into bugzilla) 1. Log out of bugzilla 2. Open the preferences dialogue and delete the password manager entry for bugzilla. (Note it will put up a dialogue box asking for your master password here, however the propblem I am describing *does not occur* with this dialogue, for me anyway). 3. Quit mozilla 4. Restart 5. Go to the above URL and log in again 6. When it asks you if you want to store the password click "yes" 7. When it brings up the master password dialogues, notice how the cursor in the text box is blinking. 8. Attempt to type in your password. 9. Click in the text box 10. Enter your password (it will work this time) Actual Results: The text is not entered (ie. the asterisks do not appear for each character you type). Expected Results: If the cursor is blinking, you would expect it to accept text

Sarah, can you confirm this? If this is true, it's pretty serious and needs to be nominated for beta1 immediately.
yes, i'm able to repro this using the opt comm bits on linux, 2000.03.09.09.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Sarah, what about linux non-commercial? Also what about win32?
not a problem on winNT (opt comm bits). and, strangely enough, not a problem with the mozilla [non-comm] bits on linux [2000.03.03.09].
So let me see if I can summarize: mozilla commercial winNT OK OK linux OK FAIL mac FAIL ? Is this correct? And what is the case for mac commercial?
Also I'm a bit confused by this report. The reporter is claiming that the failure is occuring with a linux OS on a mac platform. Is there such a thing or is this a typo?
bug 31198 has really been hindering me for most any kind of testing on the mac (although it affects all platforms). btw, i've only tested commercial winNT, not mozilla.
yep, just verified that this is not a problem on winNT mozilla [non-comm].
finally got a decent MacOS build... tested the mozilla [non-comm, opt] bits 2000.03.09.13 --and did *not* run into the problem of being unable to type while the cursor is blinking in the master passwd dialog.
A clarification since there seems to be some confusion. This is not a MacOS platform build problem as far as I know, it is a linux problem. I am running linuxppc, a version of linux that runs on powerpc chips including pretty much any Powermac. FYI there are at least three other distros that will run on Macs including YellowDog linux, Debian and Mac68k Linux.
OK, let me try that summary again. From what Sarah and b.judd just said, mac is not and never was a problem. But I'm a bit confused now as to what the linux row should look like. According to Sarah, this is a problem on the commercial linux build, not the mozilla linux build. But b.judd who reported this is outside of netscape so is obviously running the mozilla linux build and seeing the failure. Need some consensus here! mozilla commercial winNT OK OK linux (b.judd) FAIL n/a linux (sairuh) OK FAIL mac OK OK
dunno what to say... except i notice a typo on my 12:48 entry today --the mozilla bit i used had the 2000.03.09.09 timestamp, same as the commercial bits tested, 2000.03.09.09.
Well now that we have the matrix, I think it's clear that this bug is a dup of 27784. That bug was linux-only and originally said that you couldn't type into the password field of browser-generatated dialogs. There has been some interim hacking of that bug so that you can now type into the password field (which de-esculated it from PDT+) but it left some uglies in its place -- like all dialogs coming up objectionably bigger, etc. I strongly suspect that the symptom described here is another one of the uglies that the hacked fix introduced. There is acknowedgably more work to be done on that bug, but at least it's not longer a beta blocker. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 27784 ***

Wouldn't it be better to mark it as "Depends on.." rather than duplicates?
Unfortunately that bug has morphed from its initial symptoms of "text fields i browser forms not being accessible under linux" to "cpu usage is pegged". But in spite of that, what the bug is really saying in my opinion is that dialogs with passwords fields don't work properly on linux. Under that interpretation, this bug is a dup of that one.
