BuildID: 2000050308 Platform Win98 The Stored Form Data dialog from Preferences|Advanced|Forms and Passwords|View Saved Data is losing its focus when adding a second new field name. Also when the dialog does lose its focus and only the add new form prompt is visible if the cancel button is pressed and then the cancel button of the Stored form dialog is pressed Mozilla is hanging. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have both Mozilla and another application (eg IE5 both maximised) and then open the Stored Form Data from Preferences|Advanced|Forms and Passwords|View Saved Data 2. Click on Add New.... Prompt dialog should appear. Just click on OK to close propmt. 3. Click on Add New..... again. This Stored Form Data dialog loses its focus and goes behind the browser. 4. Click on the cancel button to return the Stored Form Data dialog to the front of the screen. Now click cancel to close this dialog and you find the other application that is maximised come to the front. As soon as Mozilla is re-selected both the dialog open and browser hang. Actual Results: Both browser and dialog are hanging. Expected Results: Stored Form Data dialog should never have been sent to the back in the first place and both the dialog and browser shouldn't hang.
Confirming on 20000518 W95. Slightly different steps to reproduce: Edit |Preferences | Advanced | Forms and Passwords | View Saved Data... | Add New... | Cancel | Cancel. Mozilla places itself second in the window stack. I believe this may be a known issue, but I can't find the bug number. When you bring it back to the front, the Forms and Passwords page of the preferences is open, but neither it nor the rest of the browser is accepting input. Not that this bug does not occur if you access the View Stored Form Data field via Tasks | Privacy and Security | Form Manager | View Stored Form Data. This leads me to guess that the View Stored Form Data form might assume it is a direct child of the browser, or something like that. When accessed via preferences, it isn't, and the Preferences window gets left in limbo. The rest of the browser is waiting for it to shut and so doesn't accept input either. CCing firstname.lastname@example.org, as this might well be a single signon problem (I believe that component owns this dialog). Gerv

Ever confirmed: true
No, it's not a single signon thing -- it's a prefs thing. In fact it's a dup of 39795 which in turn is a dup of 39205. So there are some serious problems with the pref panel. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 39795 ***
