From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:0.9.3+) Gecko/20010828 BuildID: 2001082803 When multiple login/passwords have been entered for the same site, mozilla gives you the option of choosing which one to use when the site is visited again. The problem is that the selection list shows the "hidden" passwords in plaintext rather than the usernames. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter information into the login/password fields of a particular URL 2. Visit same URL again and manually reenter same or different login/password combo 3. Visit URL a third time Actual Results: Password list will pop up in plaintext Expected Results: Show a selection of usernames rather than passwords. Also, if both login/password combos are the same then I shouldn't be presented with a selection. If differentiation within the list is necessary then ****'s should be shown to indicate password length.
I can't reproduce this. If I could, I would classify this as a serious privacy breach. The actual url that I used was http://people.netscape.com/morse/password.htm. What url are you using?
The particular URL that I was using was: http://boards.uo.com/cgi-bin/login.pl?Cat= I retried after deleting all the entries for that site in my password manager and still got the same result. I retryed with your URL of: http://people.netscape.com/morse/password.htm and got the correct result. One thing I noticed different was a reload does not cause your page to prompt again but it does for the uo.com page. Also, sometimes the uo.com page does not fill in the username or it will fill in the previous one.
Things have somewhat straightned themselves out now. I was sent a password via email and the password was right at the end of the message. When I copy and pasted it the copy caught some other invisible characters i.e. they seem to be carriage returns although I was very careful to just highlight the password. ______ TibUQV _____ between the lines of underscores is what gets pasted after the copy of just the first six chars. That may have messed up the password database parsing. I try copy and pasting the last section of an email as the password for your site and it still works as it should. I tried another possibility and it seems to mess it up. What I did was use an exclamation mark in my first attempt at a password and then followed it up with the copy and paste password (although the copy and paste thing may be irrelavent). I will try some more things out when I get home from work ;]
Mike, so is this bug WFM, then?
If you have checked the uo.com and it works for you then sure. I tried doing the same steps at home where I have a linux box and I don't even get a selection box for uo.com whereas I do get one for the people.netscape.com page. If you look at the source html of the two pages, the forms are somewhat different. Regardless, it is pretty obsure.
Marking as WFM per reporter's latest comments.
