User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.2
Build ID: 20120215223356

Steps to reproduce:

Technical preparation: Created autoconfiguration xml for my company e-mail (company mailserver uses self signed certificate, both IMAP and SMTP uses STARTTLS), placed it in installdir\isp.
User experience: Opened Thunderbird, typed my name, email and correct password, clicked Continue, Thunderbird found configuration for my server (from autoconfig file), clicked Create Account.


Actual results:

After password input field message "Username or password invalid" was displayed.
In center of the form a message stating "Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?" was displayed (of course correct password was pasted in the form).


Expected results:

Add Security Exception dialog should pop up and allowing to accept selfsigned certificate.
Currently this can be achieved by clicking Manual Config, Advanced Config, OK.

This is platform-independent issue. And no special preparation (no autoconfiguration xml) is required. Any IMAP server w STARTTLS + self signed certificate will do.

Workaround: Start Account creation wizard and follow it till invalid username/password error. Click on "Manual config" -> "Advanced config" -> "OK" -> "Add security exception" -> "Confirm security exception" and the account is created. Took me one day to figure out that server is OK and the problem is in TB :(
