Confusing behavior for password permissions in about:permissions
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:6.0a2) Gecko/20110525 Firefox/6.0a2 When having multiple sub-domains, the Store Passwords option to allow or block, can be confusing. Follow the steps to reproduce in order to get an idea of what I want to say. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a new clean profile 2. Go to navigation bar and write mail.google.com 3. Go to about:permissions (You'll have two entries: mail.google.com; www.google.com) 4. Set store password "Block" for mail.google.com 5. Login into gmail. Actual results: - the user will be asked whether he/she wants to save the password Expected results: - the user shouldn't be asked to save the password Workaround: - Set the password store on block for www.google.com domain This could be confusing for some users - blocking mail.google.com will be seen as not functioning.
about:permissions has been removed in bug 933917.
