Using a build from this morning ( Sep 13th ) I can't log into imap servers.  I'm
seeing this with both SSL and non-SSL imap servers.  Password is echoed in the
password field on the popup.

should this be a smoketest blocker?  It certainly sounds like one but there's no
smoketest keyword.

This is not a blocker. It only happens on Modern theme. We work fine on all 3
platforms in the defualt classic skin.

Modern is the default on all platforms right now, so I think this is justifiably
a blocker.

Modern is not the default on all platforms.  Classic is the defualt for mozilla
win32 and mac and will be for linux soon (see bug 48205).  This is only a
serious problem on the commercial side.  However, since this does affect mozilla
linux builds today and the workaround of changing themes seems to be too
difficult for some then I suppose keeping the tree closed while we get it fixed
isn't a horrible idea.

Also, I hear that IM is having problems as well with logging in.  There may be a
separate bugscape bug logged.  cc: scalkins

I'm changing the platform back to ALL.  Asa, if you don't want to track
commercial stuff in this bug report, I'll fild a new one and focus on that bug
report then.

Yeah this is a problem with text input in the password dialog fields. That's why
IM has the same problem.

Try pasting your password into the dialog to see if that works. That works for
me on a tree I pulled yesterday evening around 5pm.

also autocompletion isn't working which I imagine is because we also can't get 
values from the edit field while we're typing.

This is starting to look like a ender text widget problem as we don't appear to
be getting values out of the text fields for the password and as putterman
pointed out in the compose window too. 
perhaps bug # 52487 is also related to this?
