Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; N; Win98; en-US) Mozilla/m13
BuildID:    2000022820

It happens at Hotmail and a few other sites I've tried that have
username/password forms.  Basically I'll put in a username and password and
click Submit/Login.  I get the "Confirm: Do you want to save the user name and
password for this form?" box and I say No, and (in Hotmail's case) the box
disappears and nothing happens.

On other sites, the form is POSTed, but incorrectly in some way.  For example, I
go to http://www.adf.org/cgi-bin/wa?A1=ind0003e&L=adf-discuss to log into a
Listserv archive (another username/password form) and say "No" to the "Confirm"
box.  I get an error: "Error - invalid parameter: An invalid parameter was
passed to the CGI function."  I know it's not a standard "bad username/password"
error because I can use Netscape/MSIE on the same page to log in w/o problem.
It seems like Mozilla (M14) is maybe trying to POST the form to the server, but
without the form contents.

I have been able to log into some other sites successfully though (even hitting
"No" to the save box), such as buzz.builder.com and www.excite.com


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.hotmail.com,
2. Put in a username/password combo
3. Hit Sign In button
4. When asked to save password in the Confirm box, click No
5. Watch the page just sit there rather than submitting the form anyway


Actual Results:  The page just sat there instead of changing to the inbox or bad
password screen.

Expected Results:  Submitted the form.

I know that Hotmail uses a bit of JavaScript on its home page, but since I was
able to have a similar problem with another site I think it's a genuine bug
rather than just a quirk of one site.

Looks like more of 25858 which was duped as 24901.  Bug 24901 was never 
completely resolved and eventually re-opened as bug 33772.  So I'm duping this 
one to 33772
