Description Tony Chung [:tchung] 2011-12-28 12:35:55 PST
We need to add some inline messaging when a new master password textboxes are empty.  User can currently hit OK with blank entries, and nothing happens.

1) fennec nightly, 12-28-2011 build, SGS2
2) launch prefs, check the Use master password button
3) When the dialog box appears with the password / confirm password textboxes, leave it blank and hit OK.   Alternately, skipping the password box, and just typing in confirmation does the same
4) verify no inline messages or action required to the user.  

- an inline message telling the user to fill out both boxes.  also disabling OK if there's no entries.

- no messaging

Changing to "Don't allow user to tap 'OK' if the password fields are blank"

Make sure you test this by adding, removing and re-adding a master password. Just to make sure the dialogs work in cyclical usage.

Verified fixed on:
Nightly Fennec 13.0a1 (2012-03-06)
Device: HTC Desire Z
OS: Android 2.3.3

The OK button is not active until the two fields: password and confirm password are not identical and different of null.
