Yeah, this is just me taking a short cut, as we had to get the new version out and usable before the test day last week.  As I only had a few hours I opted to treat the "Cancel" the same as "invalid login".

This actually uncovers a larger problem in the extension though, since I don't think there is currently a way to make that login dialog happen on command.  So, even if there was a way to disable entire selections (i.e. the Litmus tab if you're not logged in) there is no way to throw the "I'm logged in now" event and re-enable them.

So, this is a pretty decent sized architectural issue in the extension.  It is entirely solvable, it's just a fairly big set of changes that need to be made.

Here are the changes:
* Create a mechanism to Enable/Disable the controls (can we just disable wholesale tabs? (i.e. prevent people from clicking on disabled tabs?)
* Create a reliable way to cause a log in dialog.  The most obvious way to do this is the settings tab, and have the create/update button NOT assume that you are creating an account.  Probably some XUL work there plus some JS back end as well.  (Once you start the login process, it should probably call back into the qaMain object and call the correctCredentials function to ensure the valid login is stored.

I'm pretty busy these days.  The QAC is definitely taking patches, and I'm happy to review them.

I just got prompted to install version 1.14 of the QA Companion. The issue still exists but at least I now know that I originally have 1.13 on my machine when I entered the bug.

patch to allow users to cancel the dialog

This patch simply allows the user to cancel the login dialog.  There are some other issues here that need some thinking (what should that button on the settings tab do if you already have an account, and why doesn't it ever remember your credentials on firefox 2?).  But at least it fixes this terrible problem.

Fix checked in into CVS for this and a version bump to 0.1.15.

We need to decide what to do about CVS vs. Hg for this component.  Filing a follow-on bug for that as this change will have to be up-merged into Hg.
