User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20110424 Thunderbird/3.1.10 If I enter a wrong password while checking my POP3 account for new e-mails, Thunderbird, as expected, shows the error message "authorization failed". However, if I click on the "Get Mail" toolbar button again, Thunderbird does not ask for a new password and instead tries to use the wrong password I entered in my previous attempt, which results in another "authorization failed" message. Because of this problem, if I enter a wrong password by accident when I want to check my POP3 account, I have to restart Thunderbird so that I can enter the correct password and actually receive my e-mails. Using Thunderbird 3.1.10 from Ubuntu 11.04 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Configure a POP account 2.Check mail on that account 3.Type a wrong password 4.Verify that the error message box "Invalid username/password" only has an OK button, no "Insert new password" button 5.Check mail on that account again Actual Results: When the server replies "Invalid username/password", a box asking for a new password should be shown Expected Results: 6.Verify that you get the error message box "Invalid username/password" without being asked for a new password
This should be fixed (for most if not all cases) in the upcoming 3.3 release.
