Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090910 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Shiretoko/3.5.3
Build Identifier: Version 2.0.0.23 (20090817)

If I type a wrong password, there is no new password prompt. Retrying of email-checking also shows no password prompt anymore. Only if I restart Thunderbird, I will get a new chance to type my password properly.

I've not saved my password permanently.
POP3-login with TLS, Port 110, no secure authentification.

Maybe this bug is because of TLS login. Before GMX changed the login security from SSL to TLS, a new password prompt appeared every time I've typed a wrong password.

Reproducible: Always

Thunderbird 2.0 is in security fix mode. This issue is no longer the case, as you get the chance to re-enter your password. Marking WONTFIX (for 2.0 branch)

There's the same bug in Thunderbird version 3.0pre ( 	3.0~hg20091021r4211+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~jaunty) from Ubuntu PPA [1].

Correction of the description: 
GMX closed login with "APOP" oder "CRAM-MD5", not the SSL connection.
