Details

If, after signing up for an account, a provider sends broken or erroneous XML back to the user, the tab will close, and an error will be reported in the Error Console, but no feedback will go directly back to the user to tell them that something has gone wrong.

What would be great, is if we could report the problem, and then let the user inform Mozilla (and perhaps the provider) that the problem occurred.

this was the bug I was thinking of - is it failing in code that's shared with the normal account config?
bienvenu:

No, this was strictly within the uriListener.js for the account provisioner.  I think the problem we were seeing is elsewhere.
