It is not possible to save another username "navigator" or any other combination. This worked fine with all the other FireFox versions, but in 3.5 this bug is introduced. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter inside a login/password field "NaviGator" (without quotes). 2. Click submit of the form field. 3. Firefox asks to save password, just press save. 4. Make sure you are logged out again. 5. Now try to login with "navigator" (without quotes). 6. Now you see you are forced to use "NaviGator", whatever you try. Actual Results: You cannot login anymore because FireFox is forcing you to use the first stored login and pass with the given case sensitivity. The new given name can't be saved in the password manager. Expected Results: FireFox user name is "Case Sensitive" and can be stored. For example we would like to store: - NaviGator - Navigator - NaViGaToR - navigatoR All as different users. Because usernames can be case sensitive in some systems. Idea: make it optional in the password manager (checkbox). We are using FireFox 3.5 at Wolters Kluwer for testing our portals. With this bug FireFox 3.5 becomes worthless and we have to move on using alternatives.
Possibly a dupe of bug 499649 or bug 447788 broke this? Here is a query of bugs in the password manager that have "case" or "capital" in the summaries... http://tinyurl.com/nj596g Do you think users will have multiple logins to the same site that differ in case?
First of all I didn't know the Password manager was part of the "Toolkit". Thanks for pointing it out. I also saw that there is another bug 499649 that describes the same bug actually. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499649 To answer your question. In our firm yess we use case sensitive logins and the test team is using this as well. See above discription. Once a string is saved in PW manager and you try to login with a same name but then case sensitive then it forces you to login with the stored name. There is no other way to change it until you remove it from PW manager. Try: http://www.inluppar.com/logintest/
