Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091121 Thunderbird/3.0

I use a custom LDAP schema. If I add any ldap attribute mapping by means of a property like

 * user_pref("ldap_2.servers.default.attrmap.FirstName", "givenname");
 * or user_pref("ldap_2.servers.xxx.attrmap.FirstName", "givenname");

where xxx is internally used name of a directory server then the LDAP search doesn't return any result. In fact the LDAP Server (openldap) does not even log any request.

This setup was completely working in Thunderbird 2.0.0.x.

This problem occurs with GSSAPI authentication and simple authentication as well.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. override any ldap attribute mapping either local to a server or global
2. try to lookup some entries in affected directory server

Actual Results:  
No entries are found ...

Expected Results:  
List of entries that match the entered pattern
