noticed this using today's opt comm bits on linux, 2000.04.25.09, while using any of my existing profiles --i cannot test this w/a new profile due to horkage by bug 37084. o'course, the inability to change master passwords might be due to morse hooking up encryption to single signon (and autofill), as posted recently in netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey. in which case, i guess this would be invalid. :-( 1. launch browser w/an existing profile. 2. go to Tasks > Personal Managers > Password Manager > Change Master Password. expected: dialog for changing master passwd should appear. result: no dialog appears.
There's a chance it merely appears *under* another window, instead of surfacing. (bug 28459) Have you checked?
I'm sure I added a comment to this bug report yesterday, but obviously it's not here so I must have been dreaming. In any event, wallet/single-signon no longer manage the master passwords. All that will be done by PSM. Currently PSM does not even have master passwords implemented but they will. And I'm sure they will be having some UI for changing it. To make sure they don't forget about this, you might want to file a bug agains them (thayes). So my UI hooks (menu and preferences) for changing the master password are currently no-ops. I would have removed my UI hooks completely but I'm waiting to see what psm provides and maybe I'll be able to call the psm function from my UI hooks. I'll leave this bug report open as a reminder that I have to do one or the other.

My UI hooks for change-password have been removed. This will now be done by whatever UI PSM provides. Changes are in tasksOverlay.xul and pref-wallet.xul.
