You can get a valid username/password combo by registering (free trial) at http://sun.imedia.ru/subscribe/terms.htm You will receive a password by e-mail. When this password is used to log in, Mozilla seems to send the username/password to the server, but after a few seconds, the dialog appears again, indicating that the login was unsuccessful. In Netscape 4.75, the same username/password will work as expected. Reproducible: Always

Reporter check your preferences-language settings..sometimes those get misset. That maybe the problem. Report back either way.
I checked the languge settings, it's set at English/United States (the default). I'm not sure if I understand you correctly; how could this be related to my problem?
I've been able to reproduce this in one way, and I dont know if this is exactly the same problem. Well first of all here is a valid login: username: mozilla password:gx282HE They work. But if you've gotten them through email, and copy/paste the password in it doesnt work. Why? Because it looks like there is a bug with Mail, that if you copy contents of a message it adds two returns after the string. "gx282HE " Between the quotes I pasted the string, and this is probably what is causing the problem. I think bug 59849 is addressing this issue. Daniel, is this what's happening to you?
No, I type the login/password by hand. (And yes, caps lock is off!) I have tried several times both with the mozilla account and with my own, but I do not get logged in. FWIW; I use a Swedish keyboard, but that shouldn't affect this since none of the Swedish buttons are involved.
Daniel: does this occur still on newer builds?
