This is the easiest site to check, but it appears on several sites I host too.
When you log into a site, then hit the back button, all registration information
is lost, and you must log in again.  I've noticed this in the M14 build also.

did you check "save loging" ?

Comment 2

You said that you niticed it in M14 too.  WHat build did you test this?

The build was the M14 with crypto release.  From the about box:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; N; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i686; en-US) Mozilla/m14.

Where is the "save logging" option?  I didn't notice it anywhere in the

i meant - when you login, when mozilla asks you if you want to store the login
and password, if you choose yes.

if you choose no, then it will not save the info

I tried that, it still makes you log back in.  Any other ideas, or am I the only
one who's noticed this?
Single signon works a lot better now than it did then; and if you mean that going 
Back does not keep the contents of forms you've filled in, then I'm fairly sure 
that's a known issue (though I don't have the bug number to hand).

In any case, M14 is too old a build to report bugs against now. The problem you 
are reporting may well have been fixed. Please could you either download a recent 
nightly build, or wait about a week for M15, and then return to the given URL and 
tell us if you still see this problem.

Download the build from 4/9/00.  The problem still exists.

reporter - when you log in, mozilla asks you if you want to save the password
and username. if oyu choose yes, then the next time you go to hotmail.com, the
info is put into the forms,but you do have to manually press "log in" or whatever.

That's not the problem.  I've tried that.  It's after you log in.  If you check
a message, then hit the back button to return to an inbox, you must log in
again, whether you save the log in information or not.  Hotmail is not the only
place this happens on, it appears on any page where you log-in(slashdot.org is
another example) if you hit the 'BACK' button, you must log in again.
seeing this as well.

Gagan, do we store registration info in the cache. I thought that the protocol 
was storing it.

Probably dependent on the nsIPrompt changes I need to make, and probaby a dup. 
I'll take it.

Can't check on hotmail it just sits there and never finishes loading.  Slashdot
works fine now.  The site we have here in house that still doesn't work is 
http://www.smci.org/forms.  You're welcome to register and try it.  If you enter
a form and hit the back button it looses all information and you must login in

I'm also hanging on linux (but with today's build) on the hotmail site so I 
can't check it. 

When I go to http://www.smci.org/forms , login, and press back the location 
information is lost but my name and pin is saved.

My password seems to be saved for other pages. I don't know what's up with this 
one. Maybe it's doing something weird with cookies or headers. Passing this off 
to Gagan. I think single sign-on is working fine.

Both sites work for me with the M16 build(Windows and Linux).  Information is 
restored when the back button is pressed.

Comment 23

Clicking submit on any form and then hitting back button does not throw away the 
registration info. In all cases it depends on the javascript on the page (which 
resets values in onLoad as in the case in point) Hotmail resets its page (even 
on 4.* browsers)

Other than that, the functionality to store and redisplay registration info when 
the back button is hit works fine for me on all three platforms. Hence marking 
this as WORKSFORME.
