The popup on the green bubble of Username says: 'Congratulations! This is a secure server.'. Username has nothing to do if the server is secure or not. It would be better, if the popup says something like 'Username exists' or no popup appears.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open account autoconfig
2. Enter some entrys
3. Let's the account test
Actual Results:  
Wrong popup as in image in attachment is viewable

Expected Results:  
Appropriate text in popup or no popup
Attached image Popup with wrong text

Yup.  Heck, I'ld go further, and say that the green ball should probably not be there at all until we test the username, which is at the very end of the process.

Yeah, if we remove the green ball from the username until it's actually checked we won't have to show this tooltip at all.  That also avoids the need for new strings which we can't really add right now.

Attached patch A patch to remove the ball. (obsolete) — Splinter Review
And while I was there, I made it handle a bad password a little better (by putting the user back into edit mode, so that they could fix the username/password and try again).

So, philor asked about removing the alert, cause it looks odd, and doesn't really add a lot, and so here's a patch.

Bryan, what do you think of this version?  Do you agree that it's obvious enough when you get the password wrong?
