User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/220.127.116.11 Build Identifier: version 18.104.22.168 (20071031) I think that I've used this feature quite a few times before but never noticed this problem... it started only a week or so ago. Basically when I send an email before opening Thunderbird in the morning (in scenarios like from a browser or other mail-enabled software) and entering the Master Password, it doesn't accept it and I was quite worried that it was a bogus dialog and someone stole my password... No matter how many times I try, it will not let me through. If I cancel the Master Password dialog I am then prompted for the individual account password and I can enter it and successfully send the email. If I then load Thunderbird and try opening an account, I'm prompted again for the Master Password and this time it works fine. But if I quit and try again from say Firefox, it fails again. Any idea ? Thanks Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start computer (boot OS) 2. Send an email from any mail-enabled software (when Thunderbird is the default), or for instance send a page link from Firefox 3. Master Password dialog is displayed but won't accept correct password Actual Results: correct Master Password is not accepted, account password then works fine Expected Results: correct Master Password should be accepted a couple of add-ons installed but no new one recently
as far as I can tell, in thunderbird 3, it does not prompt for the master pwd on sending if 3pane has not been brought up. If you want to test this, http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/early_releases/ and make sure you backup your profile before running. Note: version 3 still has are other password issues
