Thank you for the report. How reproducible is this? I did my best but I cannot reproduce it.

Please, in order to minimize probability of a typo problem, store your BZ credentials in the configuration before you try to reproduce this bug. You have a pair of possibilities how to do this:

1. edit /etc/libreport/plugins/bugzilla.conf
2. open ABRT GUI -> Application menu -> Preferences -> Events -> Bugzilla -> click Configure button -> (check Show password box)

I just reproduced this.  BZ credentials are in ABRT, checked same as stored in FF for web login to BZ.

Comment 3 Jakub Filak 2013-10-18 05:44:59 EDT
I just reported a bug from my fully updated F18 box. I temporarily changed my password to "G@fk8 R2tčw" and everything worked fine. Could you please change your password to something simpler and try to reproduce this bug again.

Have you set up any proxy servers in your browser?
Comment 4 morgan read 2013-10-21 07:16:31 EDT
OK, no - no proxies in browser etc
But, re report below - updated my password from "TTeoMMRluZFX" (complex) to v simple 6 digit password, and it worked fine...
So, I guess abrt doesn't like complex passwords...

Since reduced my 12 digit complex pword to a complex 10 digit pword.  Have to wait and see how that goes with my next abrt report.
Comment 6 Jakub Filak 2013-10-21 10:47:12 EDT
I am still able to report a bug to Bugzilla with "TTeoMMRluZFX" and even "TTeoMMRluZFXTTeoMMRluZFX". So, I would not say that abrt has a problem with long and complex passwords. 

It was probably a mysterious bug in Bugzilla itself which got fixed by changing your password. Closing as WORKSFORME, but reopen if the problem occurs again.
